Now that the G5's are out, do you think IBM will make there CPU just for Apple? Or will they also make a CPU for PC's and compete with Intel and AMD?
I wonder?

If you are talking about the G5 being used in pcs then NO, that won't happen because it is a PPC chip. The other thing is that the G5 was not deleveloped for apple specifically since they use it in their Blade servers.

Probably not, why would you want to compete in an already filled market. The ppc 970 was really primarily for use in the blade servers.
