The Risc division of Motorola has released 240MHz and 220MHz versions of its 603e processor and claimed its pricing and specification make it a good choice for desktops and laptops.
The units, priced at $346 and $425 when bought in quantities of 1,000, use .35 micron technology, with power consumption of around 3.5 watts.
Although Motorola, IBM and Apple, the major players in the PowerPC consortium have still to agree on a common reference platform for Power processors, the market has had something of a lift this year as the popularity of Windows NT has grown.
