No G5's until (late) 2003

MacBidouille posted a rumor regarding the G5. English translation is provided by Sammy:


    - Jaguar server will make it possible to netBoot os X and remote administration.
    - the factory which will manufacture new the G5 microprocessor will be in Grenoble. It is not finished yet.

    - G5 will not even be available until the end of 2003, on the other hand it really exists and runs reliably. The manufacturing is, however, not very reliable in terms of loss and is too expensive for the moment.

    - G4s will evolve -- but very little -- it is motherboards using Hypertransport (that of Xserve) and cache systems which will evolve.

    - the new models of motherboards do not support os 9, it is thus finished definitively on the next machines.

    - the core following of jaguar will be clusterisable on the system level... one then supposes a very evolutionary machine out of turn of xServe. (On a standard 42u rack, 39 Xserve dual 1Ghz machines and an xserve Raid with 1,68 To, using only one screen)

    - For the first time of the history of Apple, a standard machine is made with recycled materials (Aluminum, etc) (??? not sure of this translation ???)

    - The system composes of a main server and a slave server. The xServe slave autoswitchs to a Master, (in the event of breakdown of the Master), reswitches automatically when the solution of the breakdown is found! the user sees nothing there, only the administrator receives a message of breakdown of the first server.
