    One tiny little minor discrepancy that the engineer Architosh was talking to seems to have missed. The MPC8540 absolutely includes SIMD, and although they don't actually have a name attached to it, I cannot believe Motorola would design another SIMD considering how good Altivec is.

    However, just to be sure, I'll check with Motorola in the morning.

    Well, I don't think it will happen, but I don't think it is as big a load of bs as others here seem to think. How sweet would it be though? Oh baby...

    Now that its had time to sink in yeah I guess you are right it is kinda willy wonkaish. But the real question is weather the umpa-lumpa will come standard with it or will it be a build to order option? ;)

    That just has to be the best thing I have heard on MacRumors in a few years.

    I love that kind of comedy!
