The following is an unconfirmed rumor, so take it (or leave it) for what it’s worth. Our lone source on this one indicates that Apple Computer may be reviving the “Quadra” moniker for an upcoming quad processor G5 Power Mac. Yup, four G5s in one tower – now we know why the case is so roomy. Of course, Mac Quadras were single processor models only; this is a branding name deal only. All about reviving a bit of the nostalgic past and making it new, we guess.
That is the extent of the information. Rumor only. Grains of salt and all that, of course.
We’ll have more when/if possible.
See the “King of the Quadras,” released in May 1992, Apple’s Macintosh Quadra 950, complete with its “screamingly fast” Moto ‘040 33 MHz CPU here.
