PPC970 and WWDC Rumors: Part 2

MacBidouille feeds the fire with more rumors about the PowerPC 970 and WWDC.

According to their most recent update, they claim that Apple's WWDC dates were indeed moved due to planning around the PowerPC 970. Configurations are reported at 1.4 GHz, 1.8 GHz, and dual 2.3 GHz with availability 6-8 weeks after the announcement.

While they will not be sharing early benchmark results, they claim they are very exciting.

MacBidouille has a variable history of accuracy with their rumor reporting. A top speed of 2.3GHz is contrary to public IBM claims on the max speeds of the new PPC 970s as well as rumors from CeBit.
