Electronics Processor Product Number : IBM PowerPC G5 970MPProcessor
Power-tuning Low power consumption Power saving
"The 90nm IBM PowerPC 970FX leverages patented fabrication processes and power management techniques, along with ten years of 64-bit computing experience, to achieve high performance on compute- and bandwidth-intensive applications while maintaining compatibility with 32-bit code. Apparently, Apple appreciated the choices IBM processor architects made when designing the 970 family; dual 130nm PowerPC 970s form the foundation of the Power Mac G5, and the PowerPC 970FX is at the core of the Apple Xserve G5, a rack-mount server. Reliability, performance, backward compatibility, and years of IBM research and development have come together to produce 64-bit computing for the masses."
