From IBM.com: The new PowerPC 405GPr embedded processor, also based on IBM's 0.18-micron SA-27e copper process technology, offers a new level of performance with planned speeds of 266, 333 and 400 MHz with typical power dissipation of 1.3 watts for the 333 MHz processor. The 405GPr is a pin-compatible upgrade to the highly successful PowerPC 405GP, and incorporates a PCI interface, an SDRAM controller, a 64-bit on-chip CoreConnect bus, a Fast Ethernet controller and other on-chip peripheral support. The PowerPC 440GP is sampling today at 400MHz and is priced at $75 (10k volume) with production quantities to be available this summer. The 405GPr is sampling today at 266MHz at a price of $33 (10k volume) with production quantities to be available in June. ------------------ This certainly sounds as though it may be the perfect fit for a sub-notebook for Apple. Look at that power usage: 1.3 watts at 333MHz! Along with a smaller screen (10"), no CD-ROM drive, a new Toshiba microdrive at 10GB, and some low power memory, and this could pave the way to ten hour battery life notebooks! The thought of one of these sounds great, even if it would crawl in OS X.
