G5 Amiga: Project 'Amiga5' website online

'Amiga5' is a project which intends to bring a G5 Amiga motherboard to the Amiga community.

Apparantly, they are planning to modify the design of the G5 Evaluation Plattform from Momentum Computers.

Depends on your needs.
Because, to be honest, I don't see a single Amiga app that needs or makes full use of a G4, so why make a bloody G5?
