Processor made by IBM and used by Apple Computers Inc. Billed as the first "64 bit personal computer", which was of course immediately misinterpreted as "First 64 Bit Computer Ever". Despite very fair benchmarks, peecee users found many incoherent arguments to make against them. Slightly dated now, but upgrades are expected in the coming months... and they will likely knock the competition out of the water. A supercomputer composed of 1,100 G5's was assembled by Virginia Tech., and proceeded to place 3rd in the world, coming in just over 10.2 Teraflops... at a price (5.2 Million) a mere fraction of its competitors. Despite still being in its marketing infancy, the G5 has a long and illustrious future ahead of it as the flagship processor of Apple Computers. It has already been a hit with much of the Film Industry, and indeed many other arts industries. Can be found on many television shows and ads with a sticker over the apple symbol :D
