IBM's Power5 Processor at Microprocessor Forum
The 2003 Microprocessor Forum (MPF) kicked off this week, and with it, IBM presented information on their upcoming Power5 Processor.
MacCentral provides some notes from the IBM Power5 presentation today.
The article details the technology behind the Power5 chip which is scheduled to debut in mid-2004. Rumors of a Power5 derivative chip akin to the PowerPC 970 (Apple's G5) have been circulating for some time, and even IBM's speaker at the MPF suggested that "such a step would be logical again as IBM engineers refine the Power5 design".
Meanwhile, MacCentral reports that the Power6 processor is said to be "well underway".
