  PowerPC 970 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, the PowerPC 970 and the PowerPC 970FX, also known as PowerPC G5, are 64-bit processors in the PowerPC family from IBM, which was introduced in 2002.
The PowerPC 970 is built using a 130nm manufacturing process, and the PowerPC 970FX is built using a 90nm fabrication process.
In keeping with its previous naming conventions, Apple Computer termed the PowerPC 970 the G5 in an announcement in June, 2003.

 RFC 970 (rfc970) - On packet switches with infinite storage
In fact, if RFC 970 December 1985 On Packet Switches With Infinite Storage the departure rate is greater than one per time-to-live unit, the time-to-live of any forwarded packet will be exactly one.
Our first RFC 970 December 1985 On Packet Switches With Infinite Storage experiment, using an Ethernet on one side of the switch and a 9600 baud line on the other, resulted in 916 IP datagrams queued in the switch at peak.
RFC 970 December 1985 On Packet Switches With Infinite Storage Conclusion By breaking away from packet switching's historical fixation on buffer management, we have achieved some new insights into congestion control in datagram systems and developed solutions for some known problems in real systems.

 Momentum PowerPC 970 Products
The SIMD (Altivec) unit in the 970 is the same Altivec unit that appears in all of the G4 family components.
The 970, while very capable, will happily buzz along while a user attempts to perform 32-bit math on the 64-bit floating point units, without ever attempting to funnel this data through the SIMD unit, simply because the compiler didn't know about it.
In the case of the 970, this is a severe disadvantage.

In fact the Bel 970 tied the Bel 980, surpassed the Escort Passport 8500 on the X and K bands, but fell a little short of the Passport 8500 on the Ka-band.
Finally, the Bel 970 has set and forget memory which means that you do not have to customize your setting each time you turn the unit on.
The Bel 970 is covered for three years from the date of purchase while the Bel 980 and the Escort Passport 8500 are both covered for only one year.

In this respect, then, the 970 could fill another gap in the computing landscape: the enormous desktop PPC performance gap left by Motorola as their G4 line continues to stagnate and the fate of their rumored G5 remains uncertain.
Throughout this investigation of the 970 I'll be comparing the chip to Intel's P4 2.8 GHz Northwood and Motorola's MPC7455 (a.k.a.
Since the 970 is made for the desktop market, there's no need for such measures and therefore the new chip's clock speed will scale much higher than the Power4's.

 Real World Technologies - Announcement of the IBM PowerPC 970 Processor
Although the PowerPC 970 is a part that would cost considerably less to manufacture and sell, its performance actually exceeds the POWER4 processor in many areas.
In the case of the PowerPC 970, the processor does not need to meet similar reliability requirements as the POWER4 processor, and as a consequence, circuit and process technology can be tweaked to obtain higher performance by trading away the near-absolute reliability required by the POWER4 processor.
Figure 1 shows that one CPU core from the dual CPU core POWER4 processor is removed, the size of the L2 cache was resized to 512KB and optimized to connect to the single CPU core.

But the 970 takes this to the next level, with twice the instruction cache, twice the L2 cache, and fast bus to memory controller.
The good news is that the 970 will apparently radically alter this, and will leap the PowerPC bus and memory bandwidth from worst in breed to the best-in-breed level.
The 970 also has a better ISA than the P4, which means that instructions closer match on the outside what the internals of the processor are going to require, so less reordering is probably necessary and more can be done in the compiler ahead of time (with less work).

 creativepro.com - Details Emerge on IBM's PowerPC 970 Chip
The big differences between the PowerPC 970 and IBM's PowerPC 750 family -- known to Mac users as G3s -- are that the PowerPC 970 includes a vector processing unit, a far deeper instruction pipeline, far higher clock speed, a high bandwidth memory bus and, most importantly, 64-bit processing.
The PowerPC 970 is "Book E" compatible, meaning that it takes instructions from the set most recently agreed upon between Motorola and IBM for compatibility.
The PowerPC 970 is estimated to outperform the Power4 at 1.8GHz, generating 18 million RC5 keys a second.

If you read Appendix B of my second 970 article, then you'll recall that 970's fetch/decode pipeline appeared to be one stage longer than that of the Power4.
Since none of the 970 diagrams released so far give the identity of this stage, those of us who were involved in the pre-WWDC speculation on the chip wondered what it was.

 IBM pumps PowerPC up to 2.5GHz - ZDNet UK News   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
IBM is planning to demonstrate a blade server running on the PowerPC 970, a prototype from its development laboratory in Boblingen, Germany.
The company first revealed its plans for the chip at last October's Microprocessor Forum, and at the time said the chip would run up to 1.8GHz, suggesting that a manufacturing process upgrade would be necessary before higher clock speeds could be achieved.
A 1.8GHz PowerPC 970 dissipates 42 watts, according to IBM's figures, compared to 68.4 watts for a 2.8GHz Pentium 4 and 30 watts for a 1GHz G4e chip from Motorola.

 IBM News - United States 2002-10-14 IBM unveils 64-bit PowerPC microprocessor
The new chip -- called the IBM PowerPC 970 -- is derived from IBM's award-winning POWER4 server processor to provide high performance and additional function for users.
As the first in a new family of high-end PowerPC processors, the chip is designed for initial speeds of up to 1.8 gigahertz, manipulating data in larger, 64-bit chunks and accelerating compute-intensive workloads like multimedia and graphics through specialized circuitry known as a single instruction multiple data (SIMD) unit.
Running at a speed of up to 900 megahertz, the bus can deliver information to the processor at up to 6.4 gigabytes per second, to help ensure that the high-performance processor is fed data at sufficient speeds.

The new chip, called the IBM PowerPC 970, is derived from IBM's award-winning POWER4 server processor to provide high performance and additional function for users.
Additional details on the PowerPC 970 are to be disclosed by IBM this week in a paper presented at Microprocessor Forum, a chip design conference organized by industry analyst firm In-Stat/MDR.
"IBM's new PowerPC 970 64-bit chip is all about bringing high-end server processing power to the desktop, low-end server and pervasive space," said Michel Mayer, general manager, IBM semiconductor solutions Division.

 IBM to unleash new PowerPC chip | CNET News.com
The PowerPC 970 chip, due next year, will run at 1.8GHz, nearly twice as fast as Big Blue's quickest existing PowerPC chip, the 1GHz 750FX.
As previously reported, the PowerPC 970 borrows its design from the Power4, the chip used in IBM's showcase servers.
Though IBM says the 1.8GHz PowerPC 970 will be the first in a family of chips, the company would not say when the chip will reach higher speeds, such as 2GHz, or if it will be available at slower speeds for applications like notebooks.

 MacSlash | IBM PowerPC 970 Dissected
The PowerPC 970, on the other hand, is designed from the ground up with multiprocessing in mind--IBM intends to see the 970 used in 4-way or higher desktop SMP systems.
And by the time a 2.75GHz 970 makes it into desktop machines, sometime in the middle of 2005 if we're lucky, Intel will be running their major revision to the Pentium4 core at well over 6.2GHz.
The bottom line of this article was that if IBM keeps the 970 at around 2/3 the clock rate of the P4 it will be performance competitive in integer and FPU, and blow the P4 out of the water in vector.

The PowerPC 970 necessarily scales some of this back for reasons of cost and power consumption, but is still a huge leap ahead of anything Apple sells now.
IBM has already announced the intention to ship the 970 in a blade server -- a market where power consumption and cost a sensitive factors.
The 970 is not quite a POWER4 with only 1 processor on-chip and a less aggressive memory system -- but that would be a fair characterisation of the key differences.
