Is there any mac motorola processor, or IBM? Greetings
[doublepost=1475700110][/doublepost]Only Motorola 68000 and 88000 produced the series? sorry for my language no native

PowerPC processors were made both by Motorola and IBM.

The G4-as far as I know-was made almost exclusively by Motorola. The G5 was entirely an IBM product.

Please note that this is a separate processor series from the earlier Macintoshes, which used 68000 series processors by Motorola. "PowerMacintoshes" were so called because they used PowerPC processors.

There was some processor motorola exceeding 100 mhz?thanks

Once again, Motorola made multiple processors-both in the 68000 series and PowerPC processors(they made virtually 7400 series, AKA G4, processors).

No 68K processor used in a Mac was anywhere near 100mhz.

I'm not familiar enough with early PPC history(601, 603, 604) to know who made which processors, but very few were under 100mhz and I think the only ones that did were 601s. I think the slowest G-series processor was 233mhz.

My question is whether motorola manufactured a faster processor 100 mhz since worked to 75Mhz 68060

Once again, what type of Motorola processor are we talking about? If you mean a 74xx, then yes they got a lot faster.

If you mean 68K, Macs never used one that fast. Macs also never used a 68060-they topped out at 64040. I haven't followed other developments in the 68K line, although they are still reasonably common processors for embedded systems and compact electronics. My TI-89 calculator uses one.

The G4 was almost exclusively a Motorola product.

When it first came on the market, Motorola struggled to keep up with demand and IBM made some. IBM G4s are uncommon.

Both IBM and Motorola were intimately involved in PowerPC production. Freescale(which is the old Motorola semiconductor business) still makes G4s that you can buy new from the big electronics suppliers. IBM still develops and produces POWER series chips.

G3 = IBM

G4 = Motorola

G5 = IBM
Not very accurate. Like said, IBM produced a small batch of G4 processors when Motorola initially couldn't handle the demand, and I personally own G3 units with Motorola 750 G3 processors.

Will that really matter in this thread? LOL. Half the time (no offense to OP) we cannot decipher what he is asking. That core information should work for OP
