Imac G5 specs?
Thinksecret has released possible specs for the upcoming imac G5. The edu model of the imac may not come with a optical drive due to schools request. The lowend model might have a 80 GB HD, 256 MB ram, a 1.6 Ghz G5, and a Geforce FX 5200 with 64 MB. Apple is discontinuing the 15" model. I know you guys might say," What the 5200 is crap!) But, that is an awesome gpu for a consumer machine. By adding a 9600XT to it your making the imac what it is not. The high end will sport 160 GB HD, a 1.8 Ghz G5

For some odd reason all the mac sites are insisting that the gpu is the MX5200 instead of the FX5200. Maybe it is a new gpu that is coming out? But, I think it is all a typo that ts made and everyone following it.

hmmm.... interesting.... maybe they made a MX5200 only for the macs that 99% of people don't know about

The ram is at least not pitful and you get good HD space on the high end. The speeds are probably due to the heat that the G5 makes. But, when IBM solves that problem and increase yields for there 90nm 970fx chips we will be seeing faster speeds in the imac. We also might see dual core Powermac G5's by January 2005 or at least in the year 2005. With each core running at 3 Ghz.
