VT supercomputer upgraded to 2.3GHz Xserve G5s

2.3GHz Xserve G5s

Echoing a report by AppleInsider earlier this week, CNET.com in January 2004: "Apple introduced the XServe G5 in January 2004, claiming top speeds of 2GHz. But mistakenly placed graphics on the company's Canadian web site briefly advertised the servers at speeds of up to 2.3GHz. If recent events are any indication, it's likely that Apple had originally intended to introduce the Xserve G5 at speeds of up to 2.3GHz, but were later forced to surrender the higher-end configuration due to a shortage of the speedier G5 chips from IBM."

    Hope so...

    The PowerBooks could really handle a new processor.

    IBM shortage? Uh ...

    There's also the possiblity that when they were getting ready to announce the 2.3s that VT called and said they would like those and Apple didn't want a repeat of the last time where the VT supercomputer caused a shortage of the high end G5s.
