Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y This article started life when I was asked to write a comparison of x86 and PowerPC CPUs for work. We produce PowerPC based systems and are often asked why we use PowerPC CPUs instead of x86 so a comparison is rather useful. While I have had an interest in CPUs for quite some time but I have never explored this issue in any detail so writing the document proved an interesting exercise. I thought my conclusions would be of interest to OSNews readers so I've done more research and written this new, rather more detailed article. This article is concerned with the technical differences between the families not the market differences.

Fact: IBM doesn't produce plain G4s.
Fact: Apple apperanly sells >1GHz G4s
Fact: Except Motorola and IBM, nobody produces G4 cpus.

Baseless speculation without evidence nor reference, fanboy yada yada yada: Apple overclocks 1GHz motorola G4s.

Feel free to draw a different conclusion from these facts. ;)
