Anonymous G5 report: Although we have not been able to specifically corroborate the G6 details given, this report is in keeping with what we've been hearing for the past several weeks on the IBM/970 front:

On January 24, Apple will have a press event where it will announce the new Powermac G5's and a new G5 based 20th anniversary iMac. The new powermacs are known internally as q38. The case will be totally unchanged, and internally, there will be one motherboard for all configuarations: Single 2, Dual 2.3 and Dual 2.6.

Work on the next generation powerPC is also well on track. Apple has prototypes of both the single and dual core versions. The single core version is the PowerPC 975, and the dual core version is the PowerPC 976. Both are based upon the Power5 processor. Apple will brand them the G6 and G6 Extreme.

There has been significant talk of Apple giving the go-ahead on dual-core G6 processors, but as yet, no firm evidence.
