Apple at some point last night posted the specs in the Apple Store for the new G5 towers based on the IBM 970 PowerPC chip, which is a 64bit processor, the first 64bit computer for consumers. I dug around and found the specs before they were removed, like on so many other websites, so here they are!

The world's fastest personal computer.

  • 1.6GHz, 1.8Gz, or Dual 2GHz PowerPC G5 processors [64bit]
  • UP to 1GHz processor bus
  • Up to 8GB of DDR SDRAM
  • Fast Serial ATA hard drives
  • AGP 8X Pro graphics options from NVIDIA or ATI
  • Three PCI or PCI-X expansion slots
  • Three USB 2.0 ports
  • One FireWire 800, two FireWire 400 ports
  • Bluetooth & AirPort Extreme ready
  • Optical and analog audio in and out

In most cases the above specs were pulled from websites by request, I am now waiting for apple to ask me. They made the mistake, and now the information is out there, I guess information just wants to be free ;)
