The 'real 2nd gen' PowerMac G5 is coming

IBM is putting the finishing touches on the PowerPC 970GX according to sources, and Apple is preparing for a launch of the processor in both new PowerMacs and PowerBooks at WWDC 2005 in June. The chip's scalability enables Apple to deliver PowerBooks in the 1.5-2.0 GHz range and PowerMacs at up to 3.5 GHz, although Apple will probably clock the highend machine a little lower than that. According to the same sources, Apple will also put the 970GX used in the PowerBooks into a Rev. B iMac G5, which should be finalized "this Summer", too. More details should become available as WWDC nears.

Mac OS X 10.3.9 7W77

Apple has seeded build 7W77 of the next update to Panther. A few fixes have been made since 7W72. 10.3.9 is expected to be released sometime in March, although sources claim that Apple wants to spend more time on the final build since 10.3.9 is expected to be the final update to Panther. Security updates will still be released for 10.3.9 even after Tiger has been published, of course.
