Power5 at Microprocessor Forum 2003
The 2003 Microprocessor Forum takes place this year between October 13th - October 16th in San Jose, California.
- Whether your interest is in server processors, PC processors, networking processors, high-performance embedded, or innovative "extreme" processors, MPF 2003 will have information you need to have.
Last year's Microprocessor Forum brought the first details of IBM's New 64-bit PowerPC -- which turned out to be the PowerPC 970 (G5).
This year the Power5 processor will be presented by Dr. Balaram Sinharoy, POWER5 Chief Scientist of IBM. As a replacement for the Power4, it is unlikely that the Power5 will find its way into Apple-built computers, however, rumors have hinted that Apple may benefit from Power5-derived technology in the future.
Early reports indicated that the Power5 is already in testing and performs very favorably when compared to the Power4. The Power5 is reportedly due in 2004.
