Hardware News   Hardware News : Motorola introduces the 7447A G4
   posted by Eric_S on 23-Feb-2004 22:24:53 (1445 reads)
Motorola's chip division today updated its G4-class PowerPC processor, the MPC7447, taking the part to 1.5GHz, while allso making it run cooler and adding on the fly clock adjustment.


At 1.42GHz, the chip consumes 20W of power, Motorola claims, which compares well to the 7447's 21.3W at 1.33GHz. The company also mentions a lower power version of the 7447A that consumes less than 9.3W at 1.167GHz, which seems no better than the old 7447's claimed 7.5W at 1GHz. The low-power 7447A has a core voltage of 1.1V; the regular 7447A runs at 1.3V.

WOW! It would be fine to have a 1.5GHz AmigaONE. The new temperature measurment diodes integrated into the CPU may help to prevent an unstable system, as some of the AmigaONE users have experienced due to overheating...

Oh man you guys are SOOOO fickle. First you weant G5's then you want faster G4's.

Considering the prices of these new G4's is SOOOO high I think we'd be better off rooting for G5's instead.

Did YOU read THIS?. . .
"According to Motorola, the 1.42GHz 7447A is shipping in sample quantities to "selected customers" for $245 a go, in batches of 10,000 CPUs."

This CPU seems destined for the MAC Powerbook where its speed can be varied to suit load so as to extend battery-life!

Yes Stilgar we are greedy...

Either we want faster AmigaOne's, vis-a-vis 1.5Ghz G4, OR even better an Amiga G5 machine so we can use faster G5's and their brethern once released, further setting us up for the future.
