Motorola today released a 1.5GHz version of its : "The MPC7447A offers developers on-chip power management features, such as the ability to change clock frequencies dynamically... and significantly reduce processor power consumption. [It] also contains a temperature sensing diode that can be used to monitor die temperature under various operating conditions." The chip uses 130 nm, silicon-on-insulator (SOI) copper interconnect process technology with both low power (9W @ 1.2GHz) and standard power (19W @ 1.4GHz) versions available for $245 per chip in quantities of 10,000.

    Motorola a goner...

    It sure looks like Apple will be 100% IBM PPC by the end of the year. Motorola can go suck on a lemon. They've let Apple and Mac users down big-time.

    lighten up

    come on people, be kind to moto. After all they did get royally screwed in all that clone licensing business. Would make me want to pull out of a business which has such tiny margins as chip manufacturing

    (yes I know Intel makes a ship load, but they do practically have a monopoly - right?)
