IBM Judging by details revealed in a chip conference agenda, the clock frequency race isn't over yet. IBM's Power6 processor will be able to exceed 5 gigahertz in a high-performance mode, and the second-generation Cell Broadband Engine processor from IBM, Sony and Toshiba will run at 6GHz, according to the program for the International Solid State Circuits Conference that begins February 11 in San Francisco.

Since nobody uses PowerPC anymore, this merge shouldn't be to difficult anyway ;)

"Since nobody uses PowerPC anymore, this merge shouldn't be to difficult anyway ;) "

Please pay attention to not making all-quantified claims, because they can be falsified with only one anti-example.

If you'd said: "Nobody buys new PowerPC based systems today", that would be correct. PowerPC based systems are still in use, surely, not wide spread, but fact is: they are used. If I only said, "I still use one PowerPC system", you've been proven to be lying.

I'm sure nobody uses them anymore. :-)

Just for correctness. But if your ";)" indicated sarcasm, I didn't say anything. :-)
