|IBM has posted the first official information of the 90 nm CPU called PowerPC 970FX, in a PDF entitled:|
"IBM PowerPC Quick Reference Guide".
In the document (page 10), one learns that the PowerPC 970FX, the 90nm version of the PowerPC 970, consumes 24.5W at 2.0GHz while the original 970 consumes 51W at 1.8GHz. The 970FX speeds are only listed as 1.4-2.0+ GHz, but when reading this and the max bus speed of 1.1Ghz one should remember that the originaly leaked specs for the 970 indicated that it'd max out at 1.8 Ghz with a max bus speed of 900Mhz.
It might allso be interesting to remember this pressrelease by Mai Logic when reading the above pdf.
