Apple and AMD Rumors
AMDZone reports on Comdex rumors about Apple and AMD together:
- There was a lot of talk around the media people about Apple's presence so far at Comdex this year. In the Comdex press briefing we were told that Hector Ruiz would make a "shattering" anouncement about a new licensee. As much as Dell would be a shocker to the public, the shattering news would be Apple moving to the x86 platform.
According to their earlier report, there is a large Apple presence at Comdex. Hector Ruiz's keynote takes place on Tuesday, November 19th, 2002.
Apple-x86 rumors have been floating around for years but were recently revived with rumors of x86 builds of Mac OS X. x86-based Macs, however, would fly in the face of rumors of Apple utilizing IBM's PowerPC 970 in upcoming machines.
