XBOX2 Development Includes Apple Hardware

The Inquirer reported over the weekend that the software development kits (SDKs) featured dual-CPU Apple Power Mac G5 systems with ATI Radeon 9800 Pro graphics solutions – effectively making them into high end Mac systems, but running a modified version of the Windows operating system core.

Although the final specification of the console is thought to be still under discussion at Microsoft – with issues such as the amount of RAM and the whether to include a hard drive still undecided – it’s known that Xbox 2 will feature six PowerPC G5 CPU cores and a new model of the ATI Radeon graphics chipset.
