Momentum product brief references Power PC 970FX

Momentum Product Brief

Apple's recently announced Xserve G5 systems make use of the same revision of the 970 processor, but reference this chip only as the 90-nm Power PC G5. The Momentum document corroborates reports pertaining to the chip's official name as well as expected clock speeds that include 2.4GHz and possibly a 2.6GHz flavors.

Imminent revisions to Apple's Power Mac line of G5 computers have been rumored to sport configurations featuring dual Power PC 970FX chips at speeds of up to 2.4 or 2.6GHz. Sources have previously stated that the units could debut any time on or after January 20th, which is today. Consecutive mumblings have hinted that January 24th, which marks the 20th anniversary of the Macintosh, could bear the results of multiple Apple hardware endeavors.
