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.

This is perhaps the most thoughtful, knowledgable, fair and balanced article that I have come across on this subject. This is an excellent article and a must read.

Other fanatical and totally biased and propagantised articles don't help me as a consumer, but just lead me astray. This objective and incisive article is what I need.

Thank you for a great job on this article. I hope there will be more objective pieces like this in the future.
