Merger proposal[edit]

The PowerPC e700 article is a stub that primarily links to this article and contains information duplicated here. Any extraneous information can be worked into a #Development section or something similar if necessary. It's time to prune the Power Architecture pages. Trollaxor (talk) 00:19, 1 June 2012 (UTC)

Citation is needed regarding any connection between e700 and e5500. --69.180.180.52 (talk) 07:13, 6 June 2012 (UTC)

I found a quote from an actual Freescale rep stating that e700 isn't the technological base for e5500. This is new information for me. Thank you for making med dig for it. I still think that e700 could place well in the e5500 article for historical reasons as they seem to fulfill the same segment. It shouldn't be hard to make it clear that they might not share a straight technical lineage. Take a look at the last comment from Preet Virk who was Director of Networking Segment Marketing at Freescale [1]. -- Henriok (talk) 20:50, 6 June 2012 (UTC)
