This release coincides with news that the Power Mac G5, which was announced at Apple’s Worldwide Developer Conference in June, is now shipping in its single-processor configurations. According to Apple, dual-processor models are due to appear in late August. Since the introduction, Apple has received over 100,000 orders of the Power Mac G5, which features a 64-bit processor and significant speed increases over previous desktop Macs (see "Apple Announces 64-Bit Power Mac G5s" in TidBITS-685).
