Why are we using Apple code/marketing/product names for PowerPC processors like the 970? As far as I know, the official names for these processors was PowerPC <model>, eg. PowerPC 970. Rilak (talk) 11:35, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

It's easier to categorize them this way, and people know the G3/G4/G5 names. Even IBM uses the G5 moniker for 970 informally. The G1 was never used and G2 was only used in relation to G3 and G4. By the way.. G3 was a Motorola code name, and G4 is Apple's, but it is/was widely used by Motorola/Freescale for the 74xx/e600 core. -- Henriok (talk) 20:48, 4 August 2008 (UTC)
Fair enough... Rilak (talk) 05:53, 5 August 2008 (UTC)


Shouldn't the A10, A25 and 30 be included? They implemented the PowerPC-AS ISA. Rilak (talk) 11:03, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Sure! But this list will be far complete even if we include them. -- Henriok (talk) 15:15, 18 November 2008 (UTC)


Northbridges are not microprocessors so what are they doing here? The title of this list is "List of PowerPC processors", thus it should stay on topic. Rilak (talk) 06:47, 13 April 2009 (UTC)
