The GHz myth?

Mac Rumors has posted new information from IBM on the upcoming PowerPC 970. The most intesting new feature, initial clock speeds of 1.8 to 2.5 GHz. The original estimate was 1.4 to 1.8 GHz.

The 970, which is still waiting to be released, is expected to make its way into the Powermac line later this year. The processor would be the first 64-bit design in an Apple machine. Intel has boasted its own 64-bit development for years, although evidence shows that they won't release anything in the near future.
