El' Reg is slipping...

According to link in the article to a previous article, the iMac G5 shipped with the G5 processor, not the 970. It's the earlier article which is correct. I know because I was at IBM at the time, and did a lot of work on validating the part. As I have mentioned, the entire GPUL project was a $2 billion hissy fit by IBM designed to drive Motorola out of the PowerPC business.
