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.

Why Lie?

With All Due respect Nicholas Blachford, you article was full of half truths (selectively using out of date information!), and some really big errors.

I don't understand it!! When will you learn that you don't have to lie to show how good the PPC is.

Let the damn thing stand on it's own two feet, I'm sure it will run...
