This dual-2.3 GHz Power Mac G5 is the middle dual-processor model of the third round of Power Mac G5 models, which were introduced in late April 2005. Unlike previous models, a 56K modem is only an option on this system.
If the memory and PCI-X slot limitations of the dual-2.0GHz Power Mac G5 bother you, the dual-2.3GHz system may offer you the best balance of performance, technology, and cost.
