1GHz G3 confirmed

1GHz G3 confirmed

Confirming expectations, IBM has delivered the 750FX PowerPC processor, upgrading to the G3 line.

The organization required the wraps of their cool product in the Micro-processor Forum in San Jose. It runs at between 700MHz and 1GHz and offers a 512K on-die L2 cache.

It utilizes IBM’s advanced .13-micron copper procedure that exploits Plastic On Insulator (SOI) along with a technology known as SiLK low-K dielectric. IBM’s new offering is its greatest performing PowerPC product since it harnesses these new micro-processor innovations. SOI reduces power consumption, along with SiLK low-K. The .13 micron copper delivers 3.6W of power at 800MHz, substantially less than equivalent processors.

Previous versions from the 750 (the 750CX and 750Cxe) are utilized in iMacs and iBooks. The brand new processor offers double the amount L2 cache, and doubles the height bus speed to 200MHz. Public transit has additionally been given some efficiency enhancements to provide 25 percent greater bandwidth around the bus. If utilized in Macs, iBooks and iMacs may benefit from both faster processor speeds and far improved system performance.
