Hardware News   Hardware News : CeBit: PPC 970's up to 1.8GHz
   posted by Bodie on 13-Mar-2003 0:38:57 (2069 reads)
MacGuardians (German) report from CeBit that IBM's PowerPC 970 will debut at up to 1.8GHz as originally expected. (IBM's Microprocessor Forum presentation in October 2002 indicated initial speeds for the PowerPC 970 ranging from 1.4GHz - 1.8GHz.)

The 2.5GHz models described in an IBM press release more recently are reportedly for the subsequent generation of 970's, but will apparently utilize the 0.13 Micron Process, contrary to ZDNet's report.

Lets hope that MAI will provide northbridges to support those chips sometime in the near future
(H1 2004 hopefully), I hope that's not being to overly optimistic.

well its a step in the right direction, and even 1.8GHz will seem big anyway, but combined with the extra power you will get from that cpu it will be amazingly amazing

i do hope that mai realise that not everyone is interested in low power designs and makes a proper desktop northbridge for this.

Let's hope Amiga Inc & co aren't stupid enough to go on with MAI in the future. Everybody connected to MAI seems to have all sorts of problems.
