970 Ahead of Schedule?
MacWhispers claims that the 970 is ahead of schedule:
- Many small pieces of data have recently brought us to the conclusion that the IBM PPC 970 deployment in Apple's computer products not only is underway, but is very much ahead of the generally expected timetable.
Last we have heard, MacRumors sources gave conflicting reports on the timetable of Apple's implementation of the 970 - ranging from June 2003 to early 2004.
Addendum: Architosh also posts similar rumors that the 970 is ahead of schedule and that IBM will need to use its new factories to ramp up production of the new chip.
