IBM outs dual-core PowerPC
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 3/17/2005 11:07:00 AM.

It’s official. IBM has confirmed the existing of ‘Antares’, the dual-core G5-class PowerPC chip formally dubbed the 970MP.

The company this week posted an advisory note on its website informing hardware developers how to use the chip’s on-board temperature monitors - two thermal diodes - to ensure the chip doesn’t overheat.

The note confirms the 970MP’s dual-core nature, with each core possessing its own 1MB L2 cache. The note suggests the chip is likely to be clocked higher than today’s top-end PowerPC 970FX chips, which Apple uses in its iMac G5, Power Mac G5 and Xserve G5 machines.

This means higher power consumption levels and higher operating temperatures. That in turn means more aggressive cooling facilities, so we’re likely to see a greater usage of liquid cooling systems in dual-core desktops. Apple introduced liquid cooling to the Power Mac range with its 2.5GHz dual-processor desktop machine last Summer.
