PowerPC Chart

PowerPC specifications and informations that are found on datasheets and academic papers.

PowerPC 601

There are both IBM and Motorola logo on the front page of the datasheet. The v in 601v denotes that this processor operates at different power supply voltages than other versions of the 601 [1].

PowerPC 603

There is only Motorola logo on the front page of PID6-603e and PID7t-603e datasheets, and only Motorola order no for corresponding parts are shown on them. Probably IBM skipped producing these processors.

PowerPC 604

The IBM and Motorola PID9q-604e parts are almost identical, but the 350 MHz 604e appears only on the IBM datasheet. PID9q-604e processors prior to revision 1.1 are referenced as the PID10q-604e [22][23]. The IBM PID9q-604e may also be referred to as 604e3 [23].
