[96] Apple Power Macintosh G5 (Mid 2003)

Power Macintosh G5/1.6 (PCI)

Apple Power Macintosh G5/1.6 (PCI)
The Apple Power Macintosh G5/1.6, along with the Power Macintosh G5/1.8 and Power Macintosh G5/2.0 DP, is a member of the first Mac series to use the 64-bit PowerPC 970 (G5) processor, and consequently are arguably the first "desktop" computers to use 64-bit chips. In addition to higher clock speeds, the PowerPC 970 (G5) has a "new execution core that features massively parallel computation for an unprecedented 215 in-flight instructions", and the Power Macintosh G5 uses a new system architecture as well. Together this combination results in major speed gains compared to earlier Apple systems.

The Power Macintosh G5/1.6 features a 1.6 GHz PowerPC 970 (G5) processor with an optimized AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit, and 512k level 2 on-chip cache, and shipped configured with 256 MB of 333 MHz PC2700 DDR SDRAM, an 80.0 GB (7200 RPM) Serial ATA hard drive, a 4X DVD-R/CD-RW "SuperDrive", and a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra (AGP 8X Pro) video card with 64 MB of DDR SDRAM. In addition to including FireWire "400" and "800", ADC, DVI, support for AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 1.1, the Power Macintosh G5 also introduces USB 2.0 (on the Mac) and optical digital audio in/out.

On first glance, the case looks similar to the case introduced with the "Blue & White" Power Macintosh G3 series crossed with a postmodern cheese grater, but it is actually a completely different design. The "anodized aluminum alloy" Power Macintosh G5 case is divided into four different thermal zones with nine computer-controlled fans for optimum cooling, and features a removable side panel for easy access to internal components. Custom configurations also were available.

The Apple Power Macintosh G5/2.5 DP (PCI-X), along with the Power Macintosh G5/1.8 DP (PCI) and Power Macintosh G5/2.0 DP (PCI-X 2), is a member of the first Mac series to use the 90 nm 64-bit PowerPC 970fx (G5) processor, which uses less power and generates less heat than previous chips.

The Power Macintosh G5/2.5 DP (PCI-X) features dual 2.5 GHz PowerPC 970fx (G5) processors each with an optimized AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing unit and 512k level 2 on-chip cache. It shipped configured with 512 MB of 400 MHz PC3200 DDR SDRAM, a 160.0 GB (7200 RPM) Serial ATA hard drive, an 8X DVD-R/CD-RW "SuperDrive", and an ATI Radeon 9600 XT (AGP 8X Pro) video card with 128 MB of DDR SDRAM. Connectivity includes USB 2.0, FireWire "400" and "800", ADC, DVI, optical digital audio in/out, and support for AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 1.1. Additionally, this model and the lower-end Power Macintosh G5/2.0 DP (PCI-X 2) include PCI-X slots.

Like the earlier models, the Power Macintosh G5/2.5 DP (PCI-X) uses the same "anodized aluminum alloy" case, and likewise, features a removable side panel for easy access to internal components and is divided into four different thermal zones with nine computer-controlled fans for optimum cooling. However, this model adds a liquid cooling system that replaces the traditional heat sink. Custom configurations also were available.

[37] Apple Power Macintosh G5 (Late 2005)

Power Macintosh G5 Dual Core (2.0)

Apple Power Macintosh G5 Dual Core (2.0)
The Power Macintosh G5 Dual Core (2.0), along with the Power Macintosh G5 Dual Core (2.3) and Power Macintosh G5 "Quad Core" (2.5), are the first and last Power Macintosh G5 models to use dual core PowerPC 970MP (G5) processors, which have two independent processor "cores" on a single silicon chip.

The Power Macintosh G5 Dual Core (2.0) is powered by a single "dual core" 2.0 GHz PowerPC 970MP (G5) processor with dual optimized AltiVec "Velocity Engine" vector processing units (one per core), four double-precision FPUs (two per core), 1 MB of on-chip level 2 cache on each core, and a 1.0 GHz frontside system bus. It shipped configured with 512 MB or 1 GB of 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 SDRAM, a 160 GB (7200 RPM) Serial ATA hard drive, a reported "16X" dual-layer "SuperDrive", and a NVIDIA GeForce 6600 LE video card with 128 MB of GDDR SDRAM.

Connectivity includes USB 2.0, FireWire "400" and "800", a single-link DVI and a dual-link DVI port, optical digital audio in/out, two independent Gigabit Ethernet ports, and support for AirPort Extreme (802.11g) and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR.

All of the "multiple core" equipped Power Macintosh G5 models have three open PCI-Express (PCIe) expansion slots. The Power Macintosh G5 Dual Core (2.0) uses the same easy-to-upgrade "anodized aluminum alloy" case as all other Power Macintosh G5 models with the same removable side panel for easy access to internal components. Likewise, it is divided into four different thermal zones with nine computer-controlled fans for optimum cooling.
