A 64 b PowerPC microprocessor is introduced in 130 nm and redesigned in 90 nm SOI technology. PowerPC 970 implements a SIMD instruction set with 512 kB L2 cache. It runs at 2.0 GHz with a 1.0 GHz bus in 130 nm. The 90 nm design features PowerTune for rapid frequency and power scaling and electronic fuses.
