Apple releases speed- and CPU-bumped G5s
Authored by: the1truestripes on Apr 02, '04 03:48:29PM
and maybe the fact that computer's CPU *must* come in pairs (inside one system), they cannot be odd-numbered.

Back when Sequent made hardware they made boxes with the CPUs on cards, you could use one or two CPUs per card and plug up to 16 or so into the box. It was a shared memory box, so if you put 3 CPUs in it would be like a 3 CPU G5. Well except I think they were 16Mhz CPUs, but that was pretty fast back then.
