An eWeek article (“IBM to Unveil ‘Sahara’ PowerPC Chip “) details the company’s plan to announce a new PowerPC chip on Wednesday that could appear in new Macs soon:


eWeek has learned that Big Blue next week will introduce a new processor, code-named Sahara, that could represent the next significant jump in both megahertz and overall performance, according to sources. In addition, Sahara may match current performance advantages of the PowerPC G4′s AltiVec acceleration–which Apple markets under the name Velocity Engine–due to new technology that boosts Mac software performance across the board.
