The world's fastest computer was announced at the WWDC today. That's Apple's developer conference, where they talk about programming and stuff, but more importantly, he gives a presentation on all the cool new shit Apple has for the year. Among the many announcements is the G5 Powermac, which basically blows the hell outta anything anybody here owns.

It's the first 64 bit personal computer. It can have 8 gigs of RAM, up from the max of 4 gigs. And the motherboards actually support that. The processor has a 1 Ghz FSB. It has 8x AGP now. It's a fuckin beast.

I just went to the site and watched the intro video on this machine. WOW. I must say I am surprised Steve Jobs partnered up with IBM. Did not missunderstand or did I here IBM say they have already made the proto type for the G6.

Apple just might gain some market shares with this tech push. I for one need to clean up after watching that video. I creamed all over myself.

8 gigs of ram, 1 Ghz front side bus, super drives, linons and tigers and bears OH MY!!!

God help me, but I want an apple.

Learner, god doesn't need to help you. If you want an Apple, seems he already has Apple partnered up with IBM in order to develop the G5. So that's what that's about. Crime, I'm not sure what Intel released. However I watched the streaming web cast, and Jobs put a new G5 up against a dual Pentium 4 3.0 Ghz machines, and it whipped the shit out of the Pentium machine in everything. Stuff like rendering a 309 meg file in Photoshop took 28 seconds on the Mac, and 3 minutes and change on the PC. These are some serious kick-ass machines.

Of course there are two sides to every story.

This is a slashdot interview in which the Apple Hardware VP defends the benchmarks, contending that the tests weren't rigged to favor the G5, and in fact options were made so that the Pentium system would perform optimally.
