Review #4
updated September 16

Part One

Motorola announces that it has developed a cpu chip that is 35 times faster than todays chips. That would be faster than Intels announcement. Analysis said, that this chip is a break through because it allows relatively inexpensive semiconductors to process at high speeds. These chips are able to handle more functions.

This could be a turning point on how chips are made in the future. At bay you need a chip set, where as with this new technology all components are on the same chip which allows for no lose of speed.

The technology will be developed for the ever growing wireless industry, high speed optical network. Other technology that will benefit is wireless devices such as radar systems.Motorola said that they hope to license this technology to other manufactures widely and quickly. A demonstration version is said to be available in the next year. By the year 2003 consumers should be seeing first production to hit the market

Part Two

Motorola and Apple computer have been using the MPC7400 PowerPC microprocessor in their G4 computers. This is a high- performance, low- power, 32- bit implementation of the
PowerPC Reduced Instruction Set Computer (RISC). This is an architecture combined with a full 128- bit including Motorola's AltiVec™ technology instruction set, which allows for a creating of a high- performance RISC microprocessor ideal for leading- edge computing like the Apple, and signal processing functions.

The MPC7400 microprocessors offer a single- cycle
double- precision floating- point performance.It provides a full
symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) capabilities. Also supports
up to 2MB of backside L2 cache. The full potential of the MPC7400 is
achieved through use of the OS X software licensed from Apple. The instruction provided by the OS X takes the full potential to provide instruction to operate the AltiVec technology.

The MPC7400 is called a super scalar microprocessor which feature a high-frequency super scalar PowerPC core, capable of issuing three instructions per clock cycle (two instructions + branch) into seven independent execution units

Motorola's MPC7400 and AltiVec technology expands the capabilities of PowerPC microprocessors by providing leading- edge, general- purpose processing performance while concurrently addressing high- bandwidth data processing and algorithmic- intensive computations in a single- chip solution. AltiVec technology. No two chip set required here.

The MPC7400 is able to meet the demands of networking such those found with multichannel modems, echo cancellation equipment, and base station processing. This enables a faster, and more secure encryption methods as well.

The MPC7400 microprocessors uses a low - power 1.8 - volt design with three power - saving user - programmable. Modes: include sleep step down which progressively reduce the power drawn by the processor and full power.
Assisted from software the MPC7400 provides a thermal instruction cache throttling for thermal management.

Suggested applications for the MPC7400 are:

  • Networking and telecommunications infrastructure
  • High- performance computing (scientific, medical, etc.)
  • Desktop and portable computing presently inside every G4 Apple computer
