Hardware News   Hardware News : PowerPC 7448 from freescale will be available in october 2005
   posted by AmigaPapst on 21-Jun-2005 14:25:14 (5253 reads)
On monday 20-06-2005 Freescale Semiconductor, during the Freescale technology forum, anounced that their discreete MPC7448 processor based on the e600 core will be released in October.

The MPC7448 is the first PPC product released by Freescale that's on their 90nm process.

The MPC7448 features an enhanced G4+ core called the e600 core, the enhancments include an OOoE enhanced Altivec unit, a rework of the cache/memory register subsystem and enhanced powersaving features. The MPC7448 features a 1MB fully ECC protected L2 cache, a 200Mhz MPX/60x bus and clockspeeds up to 1.7Ghz.

More information can be found in the official news release, here, the PR factsheet[PDF, 0.6MB] or the MPC7450 RISC Microprocessor Family Reference Manual[PDF, 7MB]

Hmm, from the article on their site :
Quote:

To help enable faster development of pervasive computing and networking applications on the MPC7448, Freescale is offering the High Performance Computing (HPC) II platform. This general-purpose reference design integrates the MPC7448 processor with Tundra’s Tsi108 system controller to provide a high-performance, low-power development environment.

“Tundra applauds the addition of the MPC7448 to Freescale’s 74xx line of high-performance PowerPC processors,” says Jonathan Morris, Director of Product Management of PowerPC. “The Tundra Tsi108 and Tsi108A host bridges combined with the MPC7448 provide designers with unprecedented system performance without sacrificing power. For over a decade, our companies have focused on progressive investment in complementary roadmaps for our embedded networking customers and for pervasive computing applications such as printers and servers.”

The HPC II platform is sampling now and is being demonstrated at Freescale Technology Forum through June 23. HPC II hardware design files are available today with general platform availability planned for October 2005.


Any more info?

It would be a nice platform to run OS4 on. I would adopt the Tundra northbridge for the next generation of AmigaOnes...

Yeah, Pegasos III is Tundra based

If you read Nekos recent posts on another place you will find out that all they are doing with the Pegasos2 is selling off the existing bundles cheap to clear space for a production run with faster processors.

freescale most of the time puts the videos out after the tech forum. Should be good info out on these products.

IIRC is the normal MicroA1-C == MicroA1 MkIII

I hope this processor find the way to the AmigaOne XC.
With the Articia P we can get the PowerPC 7448.

Nice, but I really, really, really would have liked to get some more info on the 8641(D) instead.

It's going to be interesting to see what northbridges who support the 200MHz FSB can help the 7448 deliver in terms of performance, though. The 60x bus has been a bottleneck for FAR too long. Still, I expect the 8641's dual DDR2 667MHz interface to out-perform it

This weeks pet peeve:
Using "voltage" instead of "potential", which leads to inventing new words like "amperage" instead of "current" (I, measured in A) or possible "charge" (amperehours, Ah or Coulomb, C). Sometimes I don't even know what people mean.

Hi,

Nice to see, that the development of the G4-line is going on.
An AmigaOneXC with ArticaP, DDR333-Ram, 166 MHz FSB, with a MPC7448
@ 1.7 GHz could be o.k., so far...

I'm strained like an umbrella, whitch cpu is coming with the next
AmigaOnes...

Frank

Isn't the 8641 a dual core e600?

The advantage with 7448, if I understood the specs right, is the
it has an inbuilt DDR memory controller which supports the full
speed of 200MHz. You can still use Articia S with it and utilise
the full speed of the CPU because Articia S own memory controller
wouldn't have to be used. Except for "talking" with PCI, AGP and
other external units which don't go beyond 133MHz anyway.

Or am I understanding this wrong?

Certainly not IBM!
* Microsoft estimates 10-12 million Xbox 360 sold in the first year.
* Sony's average is ~20 million PS2's per year so take the PS3 at the same...

IBM should sell about 30 million PPC's next year.

Then late 2006 add in Nintendo for another 10 million boxes per year. IBM increases to over 40 million PPC's the year after next, assuming the 3 game companies predictions are on the mark.

... Within 2 years (now until the end of 2007) IBM will sell more PPC chips then Apple purchased in the last 24 years of Apple's PPC use. Damn, Apple hasn't even used PPC that long!

With this kind of CPU, the smallest mini-itx cases become possible to be used with uA1c, without the smell of burning plastic. :-/
