Forget from along to-standing partnership between two companies Committed to innovation the G5 drives the largest performance again in history of the power PC.The 64 – bit G5 speeds up to 2 GHz and can address 8 GB main memory Ram
Shatters the 4GB ceiling 32-bit PCs can only use 4GB of memory. Any more than that requires the use of virtual memory on the hard drive, which is 40 times slower than using RAM The new Power Mac G5 can offer up to 8GB of RAM thanks to the 64-bit G5. So you can store entire 3D worlds, huge scientific data sets and oversized 2D images all in main memory, which lets you manipulate them faster.
To repeat: 40 times faster. Theoretically, the 64-bit data paths let the Power PC G5 access up to 4 terabytes of physical memory. Impractical now, maybe, but the Power PC G5 architecture allows for plenty of growth well into the future.
