AnandTech: faster memory, PCIe in new G5 desktops

AnandTech on new G5s

AnandTech has an from the Apple Store (except the high-end, which is due in 3-4 weeks). The column highlights the faster DDR2-533 memory support and PCI-express additions to the new desktos: "Apple has honestly done their best to make an attractive non-Intel Power Mac offering and obviously they had to. The dependency of OS X on high speed CPU/graphics communication means that the move to PCI Express graphics was a must, and I am pleased with the way in which Apple made that move. Offering four physical x16 slots, even if they aren't electrically x16, makes a lot of sense, and there shouldn't be any reason for PC motherboard makers to offer something similar. It may be a bit confusing, but the added flexibility is a definite benefit. The move to dual core and DDR2 are both nice, but they will mean a lot more when we see the move to x86 next year."
