Hardware News   Hardware News : Dualcore Motorala processor on official roadmap
   posted by Eric_S on 4-Jun-2003 9:48:33 (1763 reads)
Reading this official PDF it seems as if Motorola will be introducing rapid I/O a.k.a hypertransport in all of there future processors.

The PDF allso claims that Motorola have a dualcore PPC (page 34.) in development, thought the document does not mention with what kind of process this CPU will be produced on, noor does it give an expected release date.

Rapid/IO is not the same as HyperTransport, although they do share many implementation concepts.

What this should mean though is that owners of Macs, AmigaOnes, etc, may one day be able to upgrade to a 2GHz dual-core G4 processor that is relatively low power.

Of course, at this speed, the limitation will certainly be the PC133 memory on the AmigaOne, and the slow FSB on that processor. However with a large on-die cache and possibly L3 controller it might not be that bad (with 8MB+ of L3 anyway).
