According to CNet News, Apple will switch to Intel Chips, with an announcement next week. It’s long been rumored that Apple has had constant x86 builds of Mac OS X going since conception. This follows a rumor a few weeks ago.
Think Secret doesn’t believe so, and sees the PPC 970 progressing. Interestingly Microsoft agreed to use it in the Xbox 360, meaning the cost of the chips would likely be lower thanks to the production increase. Not to mention speed bumps on the horizon. Seems like an odd time to jump ship.
