Apple G5 IBM 970 Specs!

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 ;)
