PA Semi bygger visst Power-processorer med låg energiförbrukning och deltog i ett samarbete med Apple gällande nya notebook- och eventuellt desktopprocessorer.

[Jag orkar inte läsa allt nu...]

Från register:
"A chip start-up that created a high performance, low power processor compatible with existing Mac software had been working closely with the computer company for many months."

"PA Semi's first processor - the PA6T-1682M - is due to sample in the third quarter of 2006 as a 2GHz, dual-core product with two DDR2 memory controllers, 2MB of L2 cache, and support for eight PCI Express. The product will ship in volume next year and be followed by single-core and quad-core chips. It also supports the Altivec floating point instruction set that currently provides a massive speedup for multimedia and scientific Mac software. At 2GHz, the chip consumes just 7 watts of power according to PA. Intel's Core Duo consumes between 21 and 25 watts."

Ballt det hade varit, lite trist att det "bara är en Intel" nu, frågan är hur dyra de där processorerna hade blivit?
