|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.
