'nough said actually.
ATI is back
IMG notes, among others, that a post on Bizwire.com suggests that ATI is going to show us some Radeon action at MWNY, since the new (or revised) iMac will feature a Rage 4XL chip, and the new PowerMacs will feature RADEON cards. ATI also notes the announcement of a second PowerMac with Rage 128Pro chipset. Might be that Cube thingie, no? That is absolutely great news for us, and it also explains why Apple didn't give in with 3Dfx' begs for the OEM deal. It also makes the nVidia/Apple OEM deal very unplausible. the register puts it a bit different (and more reasonable) and thinks that Rage 128 Pro will be in the Good or Better System configs, while the RADEON will be reserved for the BEST configuration, as we know it. That also gets us rid of that naughty Cube thingie again, something I'm happy about.
2MB G4 CPU
MacNN notes that met@box is now shipping their 2MB L2 cache G4 CPU upgrade cards. The additional and very expensive MB of Level 2 cache gives up to 20% more speed in applications such as Final Cut Pro, according to met@box.
FireWire gets hot
MacWEEK lists a few announcements expected for MWNY concerning new FireWire hardware from third parties. Pretty cool stuff admittably.
MacWEEK also reports that Maxtor has announced a new 80GB IDE Harddrive, which is, according to Maxtor, the biggest IDE harddrive on the market. Along with that, Maxtor also announced a few other drives and continued Mac support.
MacCentral also writes up what we can expect to see from ATI tomorrow. I'm so excited about all that, I just had to post that too:)))
Interview with Woz
Slashdot links to an interesting interview with Apple-founder Steve Wozniak (or co-founder if you prefer).
AppleInsider offers the latest rumors/previews/facts/guesses of what kind of new hardware we're going to see tomorrow. An absolute must read.
I've updated my speculation page on the UMA-2 PowerMac I expect to be announced in January. Tomorrow we'll see what we can count for sure (since it will already be in the UMA-1 PowerMacs of the second generation).
