Update:
Bei Computerworld.com finden sich noch einige Aussagen von Tom Boger, Director of Power Mac product marketing at Apple, zu den Neuvorstellungen:

"Because of the underlying architecture of Apple's dual-G5-processor models -- each processor has its own front-side bus -- Boger said buyers would see a "substantial increase in performance." He also noted that the new desktop machines are shipping with Mac OS X 10.3, which offers speed improvements of its own. Apple's code name for its latest operating system, released last month, is Panther.
"In general, it does approach double the speed [of its the previous midrange model]," Boger said in a telephone interview. "That's because Panther ... does a really great job in balancing the load. [For] applications that are multithreaded ... you can indeed approach two times the performance [of a single processor]. That and the combination of the additional processor and a front-side bus means you really have three factors at work."
