It is now offical the XBox 360 will be based on a tri-core 3.2Ghz PowerPC processor.<br><br>"For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled." - Richard Feynman

<blockquote><font size=1>In reply to:</font><hr><p>tri-core 3.2Ghz PowerPC processor<p><hr></blockquote><p>Micro$oft has these and Apple doesn't?!?!?! They'll have to prove that to me! I doubt new G5s will be announced with tri-core 3.2Ghz PowerPC processors before Xmas since they just upgraded the G5s. MS is allegedly releasing the 360 before Xmas....that being said I suppose if you are the 800 lb. gorilla of the industry you get what you want. <br><br>

PowerPC isn't a chip, it's an architecture.<br><br>The chips going into the next X-Box are custom chips produced to Microsoft specifications.<br><br>So while they may be loosely based on the power series, that really doesn't mean squat when it comes to the 970 series used in the G5's.<br><br>
