10Ghz PowerMac G5

Okay, so Apple *did* announce quad processor PowerMacs today. The top-end being a 2.5Ghz x 4 G5 machine. I know what I’m getting myself for an early Christmas present (they aren’t shipping them until next month though). 🙂

Update

The video card that comes with it (PCI Express GeForce 6600) supports one dual link DVI port and one single link DVI port. That’s dumb, considering the old machines support 2 dual link DVI ports. That means you can’t drive 2 30″ monitors with a single card. Stupid if you ask me…

Also, does anyone know of a hardware SATA RAID card that support PowerMac G5 machines??

  1. I know… just seems screwy to buy a $2,000 video card to drive a $2,500 monitor is all. 🙂 Especially when the previous PowerMacs had a card that had 2 dual-link ports as a $350 upgrade.

    I suppose since it’s PCI Express now, you could always just put a 2nd video card in it for the 2nd monitor. {shrug}

    Another thing I just noticed is the URL you gave above talks about the GeForce 7800 GT option… Too bad you can’t buy one (or build to order a computer with it). So where the hell is it? 🙂
