MicroProcessor Forum 2002
This Infoworld article discusses the upcoming Microprocessor Forum that begins on October 14th:
The senior editor of the Microprocessor Report speculates that IBM's new PowerPC will be used by Apple, and targets it in late 2003:
- "(The PowerPC) is the answer to the Macintosh question of 'Where do we go from here?' " Krewell said. The processor will ship in the second half of 2003, he said.
This conference gained interest after notes that IBM would be providing details surrounding a 64-Bit PowerPC with later rumors that Apple and IBM were in talks about the processor. Apple has traditionally been very secretive about such details, so full disclosure about IBM/Apple details are unlikely at the conference.
