— 1:19 PM on September 17, 2001

The Register has an exclusive on Motorola's latest:

Motorola taped out the PowerPC 8500 - aka the G5 - last week and is set to go into volume production real soon now at speeds of up to 1.6GHz - a higher clock speed than AMD's latest-generation, 'Palomino' Athlon is expected to ship at - The Register has learned.
If true, a head-to-head comparison between PC's and Macs is looking much more viable.
