 Dual-core G4 on the way

"This may ultimately come down to an issue of timing for Apple. The company is going to want its entire line to go 64-bit as soon as possible, so that the base of 64-bit applications can be more easily expanded. The power consumption on the 90nm G5 is pretty decent, if only IBM could produce enough of them. And the 970's inevitable core revision will improve power consumption ever further, especially when the 970 gets its own on-die DDR controller. (The power consumption of the dual-core G4 is an unknown factor, but it's probably pretty good)."
