It's the new IBM processor. They've been making em, but not as mainstreamed as AMD and Intel, they generally stick to servers and such.

you bet!

IBM makes awsome servers btw - very reliable (have a friend who works as a technician for them in all of our area).
IF one fan fails - the other chips in, if one cpu fails, same.
Passive CPU cooling (3GHZ pentium extreme if I remember right) and something like 12GBS o RAm.
Pretty nice server that one - but I was especially impressed with how it was designed for the air flow to move.

Dam, bet IBM is like "hey Apple, bet you wished you had stuck with our CPUs, huh?" lol.

I like how they actually thought to polish the top of the die for optimal heat transfer. Intel and AMD could learn a few things from these guys!

If only IBM would buy AMD, this kind of awesomeness WOULD become available for the x86 market.... Intel would REALLY need to fight back against a demon then!

That's right. But Apple just wanted to jump on the x86 bandwagon with everyone else.

...And it'd STILL be just a PPC chip. You MIGHT be able to get some old Mac OS to run on it.

Oh, or Linux... Mmmmm... Linux.

if it truly is 64bit..... then all we would need really is some vista drivers for the mobo correct? or is it that the instructions are handled differently?

im sure with alot of time... they could code a bios interface that tricks the pc into thinking its a normal chip... and when sending requests it gets translated.... would prob slow it down a bit.... but at that speed. a 5% drop in speed is noting
