More IBM PowerPC Details
ArsTechnica posts their own summary of the information available about IBM's new 970 PowerPC which was announced on Monday. The article touches on some of the more technical aspects of the chip, but much has not been detailed by IBM:
- This high-bandwidth link to the northbridge is one of the elements that's going to make this chip as a media machine; it's exactly what Apple's current bandwidth-starved G4 systems lack, and it's going to be a major selling point for systems based on the PPC 970.
They also reference this post by David Wang which provides some first hand information from the conference.
