Apple Power Mac G5 Quad 2.5GHz (october 2005)
Quad-Core G5 Processing
With two dual-core processors, at speeds up to 2.5GHz per core, the Power Mac G5 Quad doubles the punch of its dual-processor predecessor. Quad-core processing means four Velocity Engines and eight double-precision floating-point units for performances of up to 76.6 gigaflops. That means you can manipulate mountains of images or miles of footage. Encode HD video or high-bit-rate audio. All at speeds you never imagined possible.
PCI Express Architecture
Two four-lane slots and one eight-lane slot are designed for the latest video I/O, audio DSP, and Fibre Channel expansion cards , so you’ll have power and productivity in a single system. And with 533MHz DDR2 main memory and integrated dual Gigabit Ethernet, you can customize your Power Mac G5 for your professional workflow even join an Xsan media network while connecting simultaneously to the Internet.
Graphics assume a new level of realism with the latest PCI Express graphics cards. Drive two Apple displays (including the 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display) from every Power Mac G5. Or upgrade to the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500, the industry’s fastest workstation graphics solution, for rapid-fire effects, 3D animation, and scientific stereo-in-a-window applications (stereo-in-a-window requires an NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 graphics card, a CRT display, and stereo goggles -sold separately-. The NVIDIA GeForce FX 4500 graphics card occupies the 16-lane PCI Express slot and adjacent PCI Express slot).
How much reality can you handle? Try adding up to eight all-digital Apple Cinema Displays to your Power Mac G5 and enjoy a veritable dreamscape of stunning visuals (eight 20-inch or 23-inch Apple Cinema Displays can be connected to the Power Mac G5 using four NVIDIA GeForce 6600 graphics cards.)
