G4's have a 7 stage pipeline.Originally posted by iH8Quark
The chip is obviously for servers, but at least we know a 64-bit GHz+ PowerPC chip exists, or has existed. I thought it was interesting that it only has a 6 stage pipeline. Don't the G4's have an 8 stage?
I would have made a new thread with this, but, sadly, I can't yet.
Arn, where's the love, man?
There's stuff in the article about AltiVec-smilar technologies used and it also says 2GHz+...there's also stuff about other technology...isn't the G5 800MHz -2GHz? Anyway, what if they rebrand this as a G4 and Apple dumps the Motorola G4 for this and uses it in their iBooks and iMacs?Then we could have tehe pro G5's with G4's still a formadiable force in the market place..anyone understand my ramblings?Originally posted by xelterran
