Quad-Core Processing

Enter the dual-core PowerPC G5 processor: one silicon chip with two independent processor cores. Now take two of those dual-core chips and you have the Power Mac G5 Quad, for groundbreaking quad-core processing. Quad-core processing means more 64-bit resources: more L2 cache, more Velocity Engine units, and more double-precision oating-point units. Videographers can edit more footage, lmmakers can produce more real-time eects, designers and photographers can process more higher-resolution images, and researchers can crunch through data sets for faster results. Compare a quad-core Power Mac G5 to the fastest dual-processor G5 ever built, and youll experience up to 69 percent faster performance running popular professional applications.1

With two independent cores on one processor, the new PowerPC G5 packs tremendous processing power on a single chip.
Two Dual-Core PowerPC G5 Processors
The new PowerPC G5 combines two processor cores on a single silicon chip, providing double the computational power in the same space as a single-core processor. Whats more, each core has its own 1MB of L2 cache memorydouble the size of its predecessorso youll have ultrafast access to twice the amount of frequently used data. With two dual-core PowerPC G5 processors, the Power Mac G5 Quad doubles the ante. Applications can take advantage of four 64-bit processor cores, including four 1MB L2 caches, four 128-bit Velocity Engine units, and eight double-precision oating-point units, for a radical increase in desktop performance. Comparison of PowerPC G4, single-core PowerPC G5, and dual-core PowerPC G5 processors
PowerPC G4 Architecture Addressable memory Frontside bus Processor cores Velocity Engine units Floating-point units Integer units L1 data cache L1 instruction cache L2 cache 32-bit 4 gigabytes Single One One One One 32K 32K 256K Single-core PowerPC G5 64-bit 4 terabytes Dual One One Two Two 32K 64K 512K Dual-core PowerPC G5 64-bit 4 terabytes Dual Two Two Four Four Two sets of 32K Two sets of 64K Two sets of 1MB
Bidirectional Frontside Bus
Leveraging the dual frontside bus architecture pioneered in the original Power Mac G5, each dual-core processor has an independent data path to the system controller running at up to 1.25GHz. Unlike conventional processor interfaces, which carry data in only one direction at a time, this dual-channel frontside bus has two 32-bit pointto-point links (64 bits total): One link travels into the processor and another travels from the processor, which means no wait time while the processor and the system controller negotiate which will use the bus or while the bus switches direction. This enables data to move in opposite directions simultaneouslya dramatic improvement over previous processor interfaces.
In Power Mac G5 Quad systems, each dual-core PowerPC G5 processor has its own bidirectional frontside bus.
In Power Mac G5 Quad systems, each processor has its own bidirectional interface to the system controller, unlike traditional dual-processor systems, which constrain throughput by placing all processor resources on one bus. Each G5 processor has a dedicated interface to main memory for total bandwidth of up to 10 GBps per processor, or a total of 20 GBps for a quad system. This high-performance frontside bus architecture also enables each core to discover and access data in the other cores cachesfurther increasing performance on quad-core systems.
64-Bit Processor Architecture
The dual-core PowerPC G5 joins forces with Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger to enable 64-bit computation, including the ability to address vast amounts of main memory and to perform double-precision oating-point calculations. Support for massive amounts of memory The move to 64-bit processors results in a dramatic leap in the amount of memory supported. In practice, memory addressing is dened by the physical address space of the processor. The PowerPC G5, with 42 bits of physical address space, supports a colossal 242 bytes, or 4 terabytes (4TB), of system memory. Although its not currently feasible to purchase 4TB of RAM, the advanced architecture of this processor allows for plenty of growth in the future. More practical and still far more than a typical PC, the Power Mac G5 can be congured with 16GB of addressable memory. Such large quantities of memory enable the system to contain a complex 3D model, massive digital images, a scientic simulation, or a sequence of video entirely in RAM. When data is stored in memory, the processor can access it 40 times faster than from the hard drive, drastically reducing the time to manipulate, modify, and render the data and making it feasible to tackle gigantic projects on a desktop system. 64-bit computation power The other advantage provided by the 64-bit PowerPC G5 is the ability to perform multiple simultaneous 64-bit oating-point and integer calculations. The PowerPC G5 features full 64-bit data paths and data registers, allowing it to express the extreme precision needed for oating-point mathematics and to express integers up to 18 billion billion. By contrast, a 32-bit processor must break these types of computations into multiple piecesrequiring multiple passes through the processor and slowing down application performance.

Eight Double-Precision Floating-Point Units
Linpack A measure of a computers oating-point execution performance, the Linpack benchmark solves a dense system of linear equations. The Power Mac G5 Quad executed the double-precision equations 88 percent faster than the dual 2.7GHz Power Mac G5 and an amazing 626 percent faster than the dual 1.42GHz Power Mac G4.
Power Mac G5 Quad 2.5GHz Dual 2.7GHz Power Mac G5 Dual 1.42GHz Power Mac G4 2.9 gigaops 11.1 gigaops 21 gigaops
The PowerPC G5 core contains two double-precision oating-point units, each capable of performing a multiply and an add at the same time. This means a Power Mac G5 Quad, with four processor cores and a total of eight oating-point units, can complete up to sixteen 64-bit oating-point operations in a single cycle. Such immense 64-bit computational power accelerates applications in many elds, including audio creation, 3D content creation, and scientic visualization and analysis resulting in performance levels far beyond those of previous Power Mac generations. Fused multiply-add example The oating-point units in the PowerPC G5 can complete both a multiply and an add operation as part of the same machine instructionaccelerating matrix multiplication, vector dot products, and other scientic computations. Referred to as fused multiplyadd, or fmadd, this instruction is considered a building block for data-intensive oating-point computation. The following computation can be completed by a fused multiply-add instruction in one pass through either of the two oating-point units in a PowerPC G5 core: T = (a * b) + c On other processors, two instructions are required. The rst is a multiply instruction: U = (a * b) The product U is used by a second instruction, an addition, to complete the computation: V=U+c In processors with comparable clock speeds, the computation of (a * b) + c is completed twice as fast using fused multiply-add. It also delivers a more accurate result, because round-o occurs just once in the computation of Twhile on other processors, round-o occurs twice: in the computation of U and in the computation of V.
Four Velocity Engine Units
Gigaops The gigaops test indicates a systems vector processing capability by measuring the maximum number of oating-point operations it can perform. With four Velocity Engine units, the Power Mac G5 Quad completed the test 85 percent faster than the dual 2.7GHz Power Mac G5 and 260 percent faster than the dual 1.42GHz Power Mac G4.
Power Mac G5 Quad 2.5GHz Dual 2.7GHz Power Mac G5 Dual 1.42GHz Power Mac G4 21.3 gigaops 76.6 gigaops 41.1 gigaops
A dual-pipelined Velocity Engine in each processor core is optimized with two independent queues and dedicated 128-bit registers and data paths for ecient instruction and data ow. This 128-bit vector processing unit accelerates data manipulation by applying a single instruction to multiple data at the same time, known as SIMD processing. Originally implemented in the PowerPC G4, the Velocity Engine in the PowerPC G5 uses the same set of 162 instructions, enabling it to accelerate existing Mac OS X applications that have been optimized for the Velocity Engine. Vector processing is useful for transforming large sets of data, such as manipulating an image or rendering a video eect. For example, when a designer uses a lter to apply a motion blur to an image, each pixel of the image must be changed according to the same set of instructionsa highly repetitive processing task. Each Velocity Engine pipeline speeds up this task by processing up to 128 bits of data, in four 32-bit integers, eight 16-bit integers, sixteen 8-bit integers, or four 32-bit single-precision oating-point values, in a single clock cycle. That works out to 16 simultaneous 32-bit oating-point operations on a Power Mac G5 Quad.

Multiple Cores and Mac OS X
Mac OS X is ideally suited to leverage the power of quad-core systems, since it was designed from day one for multiple processors. With symmetric multiprocessing, preemptive multitasking, and multithreading capabilities in Mac OS X, a Power Mac G5 Quad delivers groundbreaking performance. Symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) in Mac OS X dynamically manages tasks across multiple processorsand multiple processor coreswithout requiring any special optimization of the application or any special action on the users part. With SMP, you can run a processor-intensive task in the background while you work with another application. Mac OS X assigns each of these tasks to a dierent processor or core, allowing the tasks to execute simultaneously, and automatically balances the load between processors. Preemptive multitasking further optimizes performance by allowing Mac OS X to prioritize tasks on each processor or core. Applications can take even greater advantage of multiple cores when they are written to generate multiple threads (or self-contained tasks), known as multithreading. Many of todays applications are multithreaded, achieving up to 69 percent faster performance on a Power Mac G5 Quad right out of the box.1 As a user, you dont need to worry about symmetric multiprocessing or application threadingyoull just enjoy the enhanced performance.
The Power Mac G5 comes with Mac OS X v10.4 Tiger, Apples UNIX-based operating system, including powerful new features such as Spotlight, Dashboard, and Automator.

PCI Express Architecture

The new Power Mac G5 introduces a modern PCI Express architecture to the Mac platform, opening up a world of high-performance system technologies and peripherals. PCI Express paves the way for emerging solutions for media and networking, making it a future-savvy choice for your lab or studio. Built into the Power Mac G5 architecture is an all-new system controller. This fast application-specic integrated circuit (ASIC) integrates a new lower-latency memory subsystem with support for ultrafast DDR2 main memoryplus 16-lane PCI Express graphics and the dual-channel, bidirectional frontside bus that made its debut in the original Power Mac G5.

533MHz DDR2 Main Memory

Up to 25 percent faster memory throughput With support for DDR2 memory, data throughput on the new Power Mac G5 is 25 percent faster than previous Power Mac G5 models and up to three times faster than the Power Mac G4.
128-bit DDR2 at 533MHz 128-bit DDR at 400MHz 64-bit DDR at 333MHz 2.7 GBps 8.5 GBps 6.4 GBps
The new 128-bit memory controller in the Power Mac G5 supports DDR2 main memory running at speeds up to 533MHz. In addition to writing data at a double rate, or twice the rate of the clock speed, the memory controller increases eciency by reordering read and write operations. By addressing two banks of SDRAM at the same time, the new Power Mac G5 can reach a memory throughput of up to 8.5 GBps. That represents a 25 percent increase over the latest Power Mac G5 and triple the throughput of the fastest Power Mac G4. With its 64-bit processor architecture, the Power Mac G5 can address more memory than any previous Macintosh and many desktop PCs. All Power Mac G5 systems can hold up to eight 2GB DIMMs for up to 16GB of memory. For users in mission-critical and compute-intensive environments, theres also the option of ECC (Error Correction Code) main memory, which allows automatic correction of single-bit errors and detection of multiple-bit errors. This high-speed, high-capacity memory architecture enables graphics, video, audio, and scientic applications to run radically faster. Enormous les and data sets can be loaded into RAM for rapid access by the PowerPC G5without having to access system storage. Data can be retrieved from memory 40 times faster than from the hard drive. In fact, accessing the rst critical word of data from memory is 60,000 times faster than from a hard drive, so manipulation and analysis of data can be performed at remarkable speeds.

PCI Express Graphics

Almost twice the graphics throughput The 16-lane PCI Express graphics interface increases throughput to up to 4 GBps, almost double that of AGP 8X in previous Power Mac G5 models.
16-lane PCI Express AGP 8X 2.1 GBps 4 GBps
With the introduction of PCI Express architecture comes a new 16-lane PCI Express graphics interface that supports the latest graphics controllers and delivers up to 4 GBps of data throughput. By supplying up to 150 watts of power to the primary graphics processing unit, the new Power Mac G5 provides the headroom for highperformance, next-generation graphics processors and applications, enabling even higher resolutions for stunning realism. For more information about graphics cards, Apple displays, and graphics technologies, see the Workstation Graphics section.

PCI Express Expansion

Up to twice the PCI throughput PCI Express delivers a radical increase in throughput compared with the expansion technologies on previous Power Mac G5 systems (PCI-X and PCI) and Power Mac G4 systems (PCI).
Eight-lane PCI Express Four-lane PCI Express PCI-X 64-bit, 133MHz PCI 64-bit, 33MHz 0.25 GBps 1 GBps 1 GBps 2 GBps
The all-new PCI Express architecture allows you to customize your Power Mac G5 to the needs of your workowproviding tremendous power and productivity in a single system. As your needs change, youll have the exibility to add solutions for emerging workow scenarios, such as HD video and next-generation networking. Modern serial expansion architecture PCI Express is a modern industry standard sponsored by the Peripheral Component Interconnect Special Interest Group (PCI SIG). Because older parallel technologies placed multiple devices on a single bus, the slowest device determined the speed of the entire bus. A serial technology, PCI Express guarantees each device dedicated bandwidth to and from the system controller. PCI Express communicates in 250-MBps data lanes. PCI Express cards and slots are dened by their bandwidth, or number of data lanestypically one lane, four lanes, eight lanes, or 16 lanes. At 250 MBps per lane, a four-lane slot can transfer data at up to 1 GBps and an eight-lane slot, up to 2 GBpsapproximately twice as fast as a 133MHz PCI-X slot.
Three expansion slots In addition to the 16-lane graphics slot, the Power Mac G5 features three PCI Express expansion slots: two four-lane slots and one eight-lane slot. Each slot uses a standard connector that can accommodate a card of any size. This means a four-lane card works perfectly in an eight-lane slot. If the card has more lanes than the slot, the card adjusts to the bandwidth available and downshifts to that data rate. With the high-bandwidth architecture in the new Power Mac G5, your system not only will achieve faster performance today, but will be ready for future technologies as well. For example, 10-gigabit networking technology, which can achieve up to 2.5 GBps of data throughput, will require an eight-lane slot. This promises to be an ideal solution for working with uncompressed HD video, which demands over 120 MBps per individual streamand far more in a multiple-stream or multiple-camera environment.
Each Power Mac G5 system includes four PCI Express slots.
Support for up to eight displays Because both graphics and expansion slots use the same PCI Express standard, you can install a PCI Express graphics card in any PCI Express slot. That means a single Power Mac G5 can support four, six, or even eight displays with the addition of multiple NVIDIA GeForce 6600 graphics cards.

Two independently congurable 10/100/1000BASE-T (Gigabit) Ethernet interfaces deliver tremendous networking bandwidth. Each Gigabit Ethernet controller in the new Power Mac G5 supports jumbo frames (packets of up to 9000 bytes), reducing system overhead and increasing throughput for all network activities. Virtual LAN tags (VLAN 802.1q) allow the Power Mac G5 to join multiple virtual networks, with a unique identication for each one. And with Ethernet link aggregation in Mac OS X, you can combine the bandwidth of the interfaces for doubled performance. Dual Gigabit Ethernet delivers the massive throughput required for many professional networking needs. Youll be able to support an isolated management network thats independent of a client services network, work in a SAN environment that requires independent networks for metadata and general networking, or provide the highspeed network interconnect required in many cluster computing environments.

High-Performance I/O

The Power Mac G5 architecture uses the HyperTransport protocol to integrate I/O subsystems and connect them to the system controller. Serial ATA, FireWire, USB, audio, and wireless technologies are integrated through two bidirectional 800MHz HyperTransport interconnects for a maximum throughput of 1.6 GBps, providing ample throughput for a host of peripheral devices. Serial ATA storage Serial ATA is the industry-standard storage interface, replacing the Parallel ATA interface. Designed to keep pace with the demands of digital video creation and editing, audio storage and playback, and other data-intensive applications, Serial ATA supports 1.5-Gbps throughput per channel (equivalent to a data rate of 150 MBps). The Power Mac G5 can hold two internal 500GB Serial ATA drives for a total capacity of 1TB of storage.2 Each drive is on an independent bus, so theres no competition for drive performance as with Parallel ATA. Performance is improved even further when drives are striped using software RAID in Mac OS X.
FireWire and USB 2.0 One of the most versatile standards ever developed, FireWire makes it easy to connect high-bandwidth devices such as DV cameras, hard drives, and high-performance imaging peripherals. And since FireWire cables carry power, the Power Mac G5 can recharge a portable devices batteries, even while its in use. FireWire 800 doubles the throughput of the original FireWire 400, from 400 to 800 Mbps.4 The FireWire 800 port can also connect to FireWire 400 devices using the appropriate 9-pin-to-6-pin or 9-pin-to-4-pin cable. Whats more, FireWire 800 works over distances of up to 100 metersperfect for remote devices. USB ports allow you to connect printers, scanners, graphics tablets, keyboards, microphones, iPod players, speakers, joysticks, and other industry-standard input and output devices. Each system has one FireWire 400 port on the front, one FireWire 400 port on the back, a FireWire 800 port on the back, and four USB 2.0 portsone on the front and three on the backplus two USB 1.1 ports on the keyboard. Wireless connections For wireless communications, an antenna is built into the Power Mac G5just add optional AirPort Extreme and Bluetooth technologies. AirPort Extreme allows you to create an ad hoc network, share les with a wireless-enabled portable computer, or stream music to your stereo using an AirPort Express Base Station.3 Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR (Enhanced Data Rate) allows short-range wireless connectionsat data rates up to 3 Mbpsto a variety of Bluetooth-enabled digital devices, such as cell phones, personal digital assistants, printers, and Apples wireless keyboard and mouse. You can even synchronize contacts between Bluetooth-equipped cell phones, PDAs, and Mac OS X Address Book. For more information, see www.apple.com/airport and www.apple.com/bluetooth. SuperDrive with double-layer support The SuperDrive built into every Power Mac G5 reads and writes to a wide variety of DVD and CD media, including double-layer (DVD+R DL) discs capable of holding up to 8.5GB of data.

The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500 features two dual-link DVI ports, a stereo 3D port, and a large 512MB GDDR3 frame buffer for realistic and hyper-responsive graphics.

Choosing a graphics card Which card is right for you? More powerful graphics processors and faster, larger frame buers perform 2D and 3D operations more quickly. When selecting a graphics card, consider your primary uses, along with the following: Memory bandwidth determines how fast images and textures can be accessed by the graphics processor from its own memory. The higher the bandwidth, the more capable the card is of supporting real-time, complex 3D images. Vertices are the key building blocks for 3D images in the OpenGL graphics environment in Mac OS X. More vertices means greater complexity, resulting in more realism onscreen. After a 3D object is assembled from the vertices, it must be lled. Each 3D object can contain many pixels, each with a dierent appearance based on the texture, lighting, and color being applied. The higher the ll rate, the more lifelike an object appears. Frame buer memory, or video memory, stores the information being used by the graphics processor to create onscreen images. The faster the memory, the more capable the graphics card is of generating lifelike, complex 3D screens in real time. For best performance, choose GDDR3 memory, developed by the graphics industry for intensive 3D applications. Note that larger frame buers also improve support for a multiple-display conguration in which large, complex screens are created for both displays.
All Power Mac G5 cards support two displays: one 20- or 23-inch Apple Cinema Display and one 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display. If you want to connect your Power Mac G5 to two 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Displaysor use stereo 3D goggleschoose the workstation-class NVIDIA Quadro FX 4500. If you plan to install as many as three PCI Express cards in your Power Mac G5, youll want to consider cards that occupy a single slot. Graphics performance Each of the graphics card options available for the new Power Mac G5 provides excellent support for 2D and 3D operations in applications such as Motion and in games such as Halo. Motion graphics. Motion, Apples motion graphics design application, leverages the graphics processor to animate eects onscreen in real time.

Apple Cinema Displays

Featuring a compact footprint and elegant aluminum design, an Apple Cinema Display is the perfect match for your new Power Mac G5. The DVI interface transfers pure digital signals from computer to display, and each display includes two USB 2.0 and two FireWire 400 ports for connecting devices. You can even add an iSight camera to the top of the display using a sleek magnetic mount.
Certied by SWOP SWOP, the organization that sets Specications for Web Oset Printing, has certied the Apple Cinema Display for virtual color proong. This means you can check color onscreen, without the wasted time and expense of producing and delivering hardcopy proofs.
Designed for the creative workow, Apple displays deliver stunning image quality not found in other at panels. Each display features 100-pixel-per-inch resolution for an ideal balance of text readability and image crispness. Wide-viewing technology guarantees consistent and accurate color across a 170-degree viewing spectrum. Color quality is also superior, with a broad color gamut, high display brightness, and uniform color across the panel. All Apple Cinema Displays can be calibrated for color-managed workows and will maintain consistent color and quality without frequent recalibration. For more information, see www.apple.com/displays. Choosing an Apple display Apple oers a choice of three widescreen at-panel displays: The 20-inch Apple Cinema Display (1680-by-1050-pixel resolution) shows more than two full pages of graphics, layouts, and textor DVD movies in wide format. The 23-inch Apple Cinema HD Display (1920-by-1200-pixel resolution) supports high denition content and stunning color for multipage layouts and video editing. The largest LCD ever designed for a personal computer, the astounding 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display (2560-by-1600-pixel resolution) puts more than 4 million pixels at your ngertips.

Support for Multiple Displays
Connecting to other displays, TVs, VCRs, and projectors A DVI to VGA Adapter is included with every Power Mac G5 for connecting to VGA displays, such as CRTs or projectors. Or you can order the Apple DVI to Video Adapter to connect to S-video and composite devices, such as TVs, VCRs, or overhead projectors with S-video or RCA (composite) connectors.8
Every Power Mac G5 graphics card supports two displays in extended desktop and video mirroring modes. Extended desktop mode lets you distribute work across two displays, allowing more room for viewing rich content and complex applications that use oating palettes and long timelines. For example, you can view Final Cut Pro on one display while watching the video output on the other. Video mirroring mode outputs the same information on both displays, which means you can control a presentation from one display while the audience watches it on a second display or projected image. The possibilities get even more interesting when you connect more than two displays. For maximum productivity, extend your desktop across up to eight displays.5 Or consider controlling a set of public information kiosks or constructing a multimedia museum exhibit from a single Power Mac G5 system.

The enclosure has space for two hard disk drives and one optical device. See Hard Disk Drives (page 38). To access the main logic board to install PCI or PCI-X cards or additional memory, refer to Expansion (page 55). For full details regarding opening and accessing the computer, refer to the Power Mac G5 Users Guide that was shipped with your computer. Warning: Opening the enclosure side panel impacts the thermal performance of the computer. Do not run the enclosure with the side panel open. If the air deflector inside the enclosure is removed, the fans will spin very slowly and the system will take action to prevent over-heating.

System Software

The Power Mac G5 ships with Mac OS X 10.4 installed as the default operating system. The classic environment can be used to run Mac OS 9 applications. Load the Classic application from the system software optical disk that shipped with your computer. To retrieve information from the I/O Registry, use the APIs in the header file IOKit/IOKitLib.h.

Computer Identification

Rather than reading the box flag or the model string and then making assumptions about the computers features, applications that need to find out the features of the computer should use I/O Registry calls to test for the features they require.
Asset management software that reports the kind of computer it is run on can obtain the value of the property at Devices:device-tree:compatible in the IODeviceTree plane of the I/O Registry. The model string is the first program-usable string in the array of C strings in the compatible field. For the Power Mac G5 2.0 GHz and 2.3 GHz configurations, the value of the model property is PowerMac7,2 ; the 2.7 GHz configuration model property value is PowerMac7,3. Note: To differentiate these models of the Power Mac G5 from previous versions, look at the EMC number on the label on the back of the computer. This developer note addresses EMC number 2061.

Power Management

The basics of Power Mac G5s power management techniques are described in the following paragraphs.
Processor and Bus Slewing
To lower power consumption, heat generation, and fan noise, the Power Mac G5 computer incorporates an automatic power management technique called bus slewing. Bus slewing is designed to run at high processor/bus speeds and high voltage when the demand on the processor is high, and to run at low processor/bus speeds and low voltage when the demand on the processor is low. Note: The memory bus runs at 400 MHz and does not slew. Switching between different processor/bus speeds and voltages is achieved by a gradual transition that is designed to minimally impact system or application performance and typically operates seamlessly to the user. In slewing, the bus runs at half the speed of the processor. The ranges of the slewed processor speeds are listed below: Configuration Processor range 2.0 GHz 2.3 GHz 2.7 GHz 1.8 GHz to 2.0 GHz 1.8 GHz to 2.3 GHz 2.0 GHz to 2.7 GHz
In addition, the Power Mac G5 computer allows the user to control bus slewing mode. The options for specifying either high, reduced, or automatic processor and bus speeds are located at System Preferences>Energy Saver>Options; then select Automatic, Highest, or Reduced. Note: For best performance when using professional applications with high demand on the system (such as Final Cut Pro or Logic), you may want to set the processor/bus speed option to highest. If the Power Mac G5 computer detects a processor temperature that is high, due to high ambient temperatures or other factors, it will automatically enter bus slewing mode regardless of the selected setting.

Processor States

The following processor states are defined:
Run: The system is running at maximum processing capacity with all processors running at full speed. Idle: The system is idling; this is the default state. All clocks are running and the system can return to running code within a few nanoseconds. If the system has no work to do, it will be in idle mode.

System Modes

The Macintosh system has the following power-saving modes. If the system does not support full sleep, it will use the less efficient doze mode.
Run: The system is fully functional in normal operating mode with all components powered and operating. Doze: The power to the disk drive motors and the display is turned off, but the power supply and fans are still on. PCI cards that don't support full system sleep (some SCSI cards, some graphics cards) will cause the machine to doze rather than fully sleep. Full sleep: The main power supply is shut down. A trickle supply provides auxiliary power to the PCI slots and keeps the DRAM state preserved for a quick recovery. All processors are powered off with their state preserved in DRAM. All non-essential clocks in the system are suspended. This mode allows the computer to meet Energy Star sleep requirements while providing the ability to start up without rebooting. This system may be awakened by administrative network packets, keyboard or mouse activity, USB device insertion or removal, or PMU scheduled wakeup. Off: The Power Mac G5 computer meets FEMP (Federal Energy Management Program) requirements and supports FireWire ports functioning as repeaters when operating on AC power.

The remainder of this chapter describes the architecture of the processor module, the U3H memory controller and bridge IC, the K2 I/O controller IC, and the USB controllers.

Processor Module

The dual processor Power Mac G5 contains two identical PowerPC G5 processor modules. Each processor module is connected to the main logic board by a 300-pin connector. To achieve the required level of performance, the signal lines that connect the processor module and the main logic board are carefully matched in length, loading, and impedance.
PowerPC G5 Microprocessor
The PowerPC G5 used in the Power Mac G5 computer has the following features:
64-bit PowerPC implementation with 42-bit physical memory addressing core runs at twice the bus speed superscalar execution core supporting more than 200 in-flight instructions two independent double-precision floating point units Velocity Engine: 128-bit-wide vector execution unit 64K L1 instruction cache, 32K L1 data cache per processor fully symmetric multiprocessing capability built-in 512 KB backside L2 cache per processor two independent, unidirectional 1.0 GHz to 1.35 GHz frontside buses each supporting up to 10.8 GBps data throughput per processor

For more information, see the reference at PowerPC G5 Microprocessor (page 63).
Bridge and Memory Controller
The U3H custom IC is at the heart of the Power Mac G5 computer. It provides the bridging functionality among the processors, the memory system, HyperTransport bus to the PCI-based I/O system, and the AGP slot.

Processor Bus

The processor bus is a 1 GHz, 1.15 GHz or 1.35 GHz bus connecting the processor module to the U3H IC. The bus has 64-bit (32-bit in and 32-bit out) wide data and 36-bit wide addresses. The Power Mac G5 system controller is built with 130-nanometer, SOI technology. This super-efficient point-to-point architecture provides each subsystem with dedicated bandwidth to main memory. The Power Mac G5 uses separate processor boards with each PowerPC G5 processor; two processor boards are used for the Power Mac G5s dual processor design. The U3H I/O implements two independent processor interfaces. The processor clock is derived from a PLL which multiplies the reference clock by preset intervals of 8 times. Out-of-order completion allows the memory controller to optimize the data bus efficiency by transferring whichever data is ready, rather than having to pass data across the bus in the order the transactions were posted on the bus. This means that a fast DDR SDRAM read can pass a slow PCI read, potentially enabling the processor to do more before it has to wait on the PCI data. Intervention is a cache-coherency optimization that improves performance for dual-processor systems. If one processor modifies some data, that data first gets stored only in that processors cache. If the other processor then wants that data, it needs to get the new modified values.

Main Memory Bus

The Power Mac G5 computer main memory bus connects the main memory to the U3H IC via the 128-bit data bus. The memory modules are 400 MHz (PC3200) DDR SDRAM DIMMs with a per system maximum of 4 GB or 8 GB, depending on the configuration. Standard supported DIMM sizes are 128, 256, 512 MB, and 1 GB. The DIMMs must be unbuffered and installed in pairs of the same size. For more information about memory DIMMs and installation, see RAM Expansion (page 55).
Accelerated Graphics Port Bus
The accelerated graphics port (AGP 8x Pro) bus is a 266/533 MHz, 32-bit bus connecting the AGP card to the U3H IC. DDR data is transmitted at both edges of the clock for peak transfers of 2.1 GBps. The AGP bus is an enhanced PCI bus with extra functionality to burst texture data and other graphics across the port up to 8 times faster than a 66 MHz PCI port. The Power Mac G5 computers AGP implementation is compatible with version 3 of the AGP specification and with the Pro version of AGP. AGP 3.0 enables deeply pipelined memory read and write operations and demultiplexing of address and data on the bus.

The DB-DMA system provides a scatter-gather process based on memory-resident data structures that describe the data transfers. The DMA engine is enhanced to allow bursting of data files for improved performance.

Wireless LAN Module

The AirPort Extreme Card wireless LAN module (via the PCI USB controller) contains a media access controller (MAC), a digital signal processor (DSP), and a radio-frequency (RF) section. The module is wired to an antenna port on the rear of the computer. The AirPort Extreme Card is compliant with the IEEE 802.11g standard. The card transmits and receives data at up to 54 Mbps and is compatible with Apple AirPort systems as well as other 802.11b and 802.11g Wi-Fi certified products. For information about its operation, see AirPort Extreme Card (page 40). The internal Bluetooth module connectivity comes off the PCI USB controller. See Bluetooth Technology (page 41) for more information.

Modem Slot Support

The K2 IC supports the modem and provides DB-DMA (descriptor-based direct memory access) support for the modem slot interface. The modem is connected via an I2S interface. The internal hardware modem is a separate module that contains a modem controller IC, a data pump, and the interface to the telephone line (DAA). For more information about the modem, see Internal Modem (page 40).

Boot ROM

The boot ROM consists of 1 MB of on-board flash EEPROM. The boot ROM includes the hardware-specific code and tables needed to start up the computer using Open Firmware, to load an operating system, and to provide common hardware access services.

Ethernet Controller

The K2 IC includes an Ethernet media access controller (MAC) and PHY. As a separate I/O channel on the K2 IC, it can operate at its full capacity without degrading the performance of other peripheral devices. The MAC implements the link layer. It is connected to a PHY that is internal to K2 and provides 10Base-T/UTP, 100Base-TX, or 1000Base-T operation over a standard twisted-pair interface. The Ethernet port is auto-sensing and self-configuring to allow use of either a cross-over or straight-through cable. The operating speed of the link is automatically negotiated by the PHY and the bridge, router, hub, switch, or other Mac or PC to which the Ethernet port is connected. For information about the Ethernet port, see Ethernet Port (page 36).

Power Controller

The power management controller in the Power Mac G5 computer is a microcontroller called the PMU99. It supports new modes of power management that provide significantly lower power consumption than earlier systems. The Power Mac G5 also utilizes a service processor unit and a fan controller unit (refer to Fan Controller (page 29)). For more information on power management strategy, see Power Management (page 16).

Graphics Cards

All graphics cards support dual displays in either extended desktop or video mirroring mode, and the dual-link cards support a 30 Apple Cinema HD display at digital resolutions up to 2560x1600 pixels and analog resolutions up to 1600x1200 pixels. For information about the graphics cards ports and modes, see Video Monitor Ports (page 49). The display memory on the AGP card is separate from the main memory. The display memory consists of 128 MB or 256 MB of DDR devices configured to make a 128-bit data bus. The display memory cannot be expanded by the user.

Fan Controller

The Power Mac G5 system employs advanced thermal and wattage management to keep acoustic noise to a minimum. The enclosure is divided into discrete zones, each with independently controlled fans bringing in cool air from the front of the enclosure, directing it over system components and exhausting it out the rear. Temperature and power consumption are monitored by the operating system which communicates with the Fan Control Unit, which in turn controls and monitors fan operation. Note that if Mac OS X is not booted, thermal management must be provided by the alternate development operating system.
Fan Control Unit (FCU) controls the fans and pumps in the Power Mac G5 and regulates the speeds to run each fan. The FCU derives fan speed from sensors in each thermal zone. Some of these sensors are thermal while others monitor power/wattage used in a particular area. It is important to note that there are fixed limits to fan speed in those areas where power sensors are used. At the upper limits, a fan could be fixed at a particular speed, based on power consumption, even though that zone continues to generate more heat. If the FCU does not receive an update from the operating system within two minutes, it begins to ramp up the speed of the fans to full speed.

Liquid Cooling System

FireWire 800 Connector

The FireWire 800 port on the Power Mac G5 computer is based on IEEE 1394b and enables a 800 Mbps transfer rate. FireWire 800 uses a 9-pin connector and is backwards compatible with original 1394a (FireWire 400) devices with 6-pin or 4-pin connectors. With the appropriate cable, the 9-pin port works seamlessly with legacy FireWire devices. Cables are available to go from both 6-pin and 4-pin connectors to a 9-pin, and 9-pin to 9-pin. The 9-pin FireWire 800 connector is shown in Figure 3-2 (page 33). Its connector signals and pin assignments are shown in Table 3-2 (page 33). Figure 3-2

Pin Signal name Description 9 TPA (R) VG SC VP TPB (R) Twisted-pair A Ground Reference Power Ground Status Contact (no connection; reserved) Power Voltage (approximately 25 V DC) Twisted-pair B Ground Reference
VP (pin 8) provides up to 15 W power, shared with the other FireWire connectors. The voltage on the power pin is approximately 25 V. The 9-pin FireWire port is capable of operating at 100, 200, 400, and 800 Mbps, depending on the device it is connected to. Using a cable with a 9-pin connector at one end and a 4-pin or 6-pin connector at the other, the 9-pin port is capable of directly connecting to all existing FireWire devices. Using a cable with 9-pin connectors at both ends, the 9-pin port is capable of operating at 800 Mbps. The IEEE 1394b standard defines long-haul media using Cat 5 UTP and several kinds of optical fiber. The Power Mac G5 computer is interoperable with such cables but cannot be directly connected to them. To use long-haul cables, connect the computer to a 1394b hub that has the desired kind of long-haul connectors. If the hub has a bilingual port, that port can be connected to any of the computers FireWire ports. If the hub has a beta-only port, it can be connected only to the computers 9-pin port.

FireWire 400 Connector

The FireWire 400 ports 1 and 2 use the six-pin connectors shown in Figure 3-3 (page 34). The connector signals and pin assignments are shown in Table 3-3 (page 35). Figure 3-3 6-pin FireWire 400 connector

Shell

The power pin provides up to 15 W total power, shared with the other FireWire connectors. The voltage on the power pin is approximately 25 V. Pin 2 of the 6-pin FireWire connector is ground return for both power and the inner cable shield. In a FireWire cable with a 4-pin connector on the other end, the wire from pin 2 is connected to the shell of the 4-pin connector. The signal pairs are crossed in the cable itself so that pins 5 and 6 at one end of the cable connect with pins 3 and 4 at the other end. When transmitting, pins 3 and 4 carry data and pins 5 and 6 carry clock; when receiving, the reverse is true.
FireWire Device Programming
Mac OS X includes general support for the FireWire bus and specific support for various kinds of FireWire devices and protocols. Developers can use the built-in support or provide additional applications and drivers for use with their products. The general FireWire services will configure the FireWire bus, scan the bus for new devices, and allow multiple drivers and devices to share a single FireWire interface cooperatively. The general services also publish information about the bus and the devices in the IO Registry, so that IO Kit can match protocols and drivers to each connected FireWire device. The specific device and protocol support in Mac OS X as provided with the Power Mac G5 includes the following:
General services for Serial Bus Protocol 2 (SBP-2) and support for most mass storage devices using SBP-2, such as hard disk drives, optical drives, flash card readers, Target Disk Mode (see Target Disk Mode (page 36), and the iPod. Mac OS X can boot from most of these devices. General services for the Audio Video Control (AV/C) protocol and support for most digital video (DV) cameras and decks using this protocol, including video capture through standard QuickTime APIs. A QuickTime device driver for IIDC/DCAM type cameras such as the iSight. A network device driver supporting IP (Internet Protocol) over FireWire according to IEEE RFC 2734.
Additional services for user-space and kernel access to all FireWire resources.
For information on writing FireWire drivers or applications, download the latest FireWire SDK from http://developer.apple.com/sdk/

Bluetooth is available as a fully-integrated build-to-order option or as an Apple Authorized Service Provider kit, which can be installed by an Apple retail store or an Apple Authorized Service Provider. When the Bluetooth option is included on the factory order, the Bluetooth antenna is provided in the accessory kit and must be installed on the Bluetooth antenna port on the rear of the enclosure. The Bluetooth technology supports the following profiles:
serial port (SPP) provides a wireless serial connection to other Bluetooth devices dial-up networking (DUN) enables a mobile phone to act as a modem object push (OPP) enables the transfer of files between Bluetooth devices human interface device (HID) enables the use of Bluetooth input devices (keyboards and mice) Bluetooth file transfer profile (FTP) enables browsing of the file system of other Bluetooth devices which support Bluetooth FTP hardcopy cable replacement profiler (HCRP) describes how to send rendered data over a Bluetooth link to a device, such as a printer. Although other profiles can be used for printing, the HCRP is specially designed to support hardcopy applications. headset profile (HSP) enables the use of Bluetooth-enabled wireless headsets for applications such as iChat. This profile does not enable use of Apple Speech Recognition due to the fact that it is a low-precision audio channel.
For more information on Bluetooth technology, refer to Bluetooth (page 67).

Keyboard

The Power Mac G5 computer comes with an Apple Keyboard. It is a full-size keyboard with function keys and separate numeric keypad and editing sections. The keyboard has an attached 1-meter cable and comes with a 1-meter extender cable for installations where the computer is located on the floor or away from the immediate desktop area.

Keyboard Features

Here is a list of the features of the Apple Keyboard.
sloped design 109 keys (on the ANSI versions) 16 function keys 6 editing keys (Page Up, Page Down, Home, End, Forward Delete, and Help) USB HID Consumer Page Usage multimedia control keys
full travel, standard pitch keys on alphanumeric, editing, and keypad sections, including function keys and cursor-position keys localized worldwide: 33 versions, standard layouts (including: ANSI, JIS, ISO) LED indicator on the Caps Lock key USB hub functionality with two USB 1.1 sockets

Note: There is no power key on this keyboard.

Keyboard Layout

There are localized versions of the Apple Keyboard for use in different parts of the world. The three standards used are ANSI (US and North America), JIS (Japan), and ISO (Europe). Applications can determine which keyboard is connected by calling the Gestalt Manager and checking for the corresponding value of the gestaltKeyboardType selector. Figure 3-4 (page 43) shows the keyboard layout for the ANSI keyboard. Figure 3-4 ANSI keyboard layout

MultiMedia Control Keys

The keyboard has six multimedia keys: Volume Up, Volume Down, Mute, Brightness Up (F15), Brightness Down (F14), and Eject. Theses keys provide direct control of the features on the computer by way of the USB.

Keyboard and USB

The Apple Keyboard is designed to work with the computer by way of the USB ports. The keyboard has a captive cable with a USB Type A connector. The keyboard is a bus-powered USB hub with two USB Type A ports.
Warning: A bus-powered hub as defined in the USB specification does not provide enough power to support a second bus-powered hub. A second bus-powered hub must be connected to a USB port on the computer or other self-powered hub, not to a port on the keyboard. Apple provides a HID class driver for the Apple Keyboard, which supports the USB boot protocol. Other keyboards intended for use on the Macintosh platform must support the HID boot protocol, as defined in the USB Device Class Definition for Human Interface Devices (HIDs).

Programmers Switches

Key combinations for programmers switches that used the Power button on earlier models now use the Eject key. Here are the key combinations for the Power Mac G5 computer.
Control-Command-Eject: restart immediately (reset) Control-Command-Option-Eject: shut down immediately Control-Eject: display the dialog for shutdown, restart, and sleep
The key combinations are decoded in software and may not be available under some crashed conditions.
NMI without Programmers Switch
Current Macintosh computers do not have a programmers switch, which allowed users to generate a non-maskable interrupt (NMI). The paragraphs below describe how to generate an NMI from a remote session for systems that do not have a physical programmer's switch. Starting with Mac OS X 10.1.2, the OS will promote and recognize the DB_NMI bit in the boot-args property of the chosen node from Open Firmware. When the DB_NMI bit is set, the user can generate a non-maskable interrupt (NMI) by pressing the system's power button. This replaces the power buttons sleep or wake response. The system reads the state of the bit at boot time from the boot-args configuration variable. For more information about the debug flags, please see Inside Mac OS X: Kernel Programming. To set the DB_NMI bit, enter the following command at the Terminal to display the current debug flag settings.
