[Oliver Peters] "Apple quite prominently promoted its G5 as the fastest computer"

This is straight from the horses mouth, be sure to follow the asterisk:

While Apple did have a server line, they don't anymore.

They got out of big data.

The offered replacements? A MacMini, and a MacPro.

I have buddies running multiuser, live broadcast environments with a couple of MacMinis as the metadata servers, with data served over Thunderbolt and then out to Ethernet.

ToolsOnAir has TV Station in a Mac running content through Mac minis and ioXTs.

Perhaps, these smaller computers are fast enough to get things done these days.

Of course, if you're talking about a 200 person operation, Thunderbolt won't hack it, but in the 2-10 person compressed broadcast outfit? It's a cakewalk.
