Just watched "Revenge of the Sith" AGAIN!!!
I cannot get enough of it for some reason
I did watch all throught the credits this time and noticed that AMD did the previsual shots with their Opteron 64... I then immediately looked online and read an article which read that Apple is losing ground to AMD.... I mean, I love AMD as much as the next gamer/computer grapic design artist, but I mean, is Apple really losing it? I have a PowerBook G4 and I love it. Perhaps they should incorporate AMD Athlon 64's and Opterons into their designs. I wonder why they decided to have IBM make there cpu's instead of AMD???? Maybe in the future. Can anyone shed any light on my thoughts?MacBook Pro

I think Apple originally gained the power they did because they were the only ones who had the software for Multimedia/Art type of stuff. But now that other Operating systems have or are catching up (depending on your view point) People are now free to choose. I personally like appple software but I cannot afford their prices for hardware and software so I went the PC/Adobe route. As for why they switched to IBM for new chips, I think Motorola had topped out on their speeds but Im not really sure.

Well first and foremost, its a completely different CPU. It is not based on the x86 architecture like AMD and INTEL processors are. It is also a RISC based CPU instead of a CISC."Opinions not based on knowledge are ugly things"

What they mean is that Apple is losing ground to AMD in the movie biz.

Motorola, Apple, and IBM have a joint processor development agreement. Despite rumors, it is doubtful Apple will be abandoning the PowerPC platform anytime soon.Robert Richmond | Infinite perceptions. One reality.

I think Lucas's animation is making things entirely too "busy" onscreen. I mean, for battles, I can understand the busy stuff, but when you're trying to watch the dialogue they'll be standing in front of a giant window with crap wizzing around, etc. It's just everywhere. I liked the simplicity of the originals.
