PowerPC G5[edit]

Maybe PowerPC G5 should also be added to this template since G3 and G4 are there? And if so, then instantiate the template at the bottom of the G5 article.Bovineone 18:55, 18 July 2005 (UTC)

Well.. Motorola/Freescale didn't have any part of the PowerPC 070 design, so I will remove it from the template. However.. I'll include the PowerQUICC-series. -- �Henriok 15:12, 3 December 2006 (UTC)
Remember that Motorola had their own "G5" PowerPC project (called the PowerPC 7500 or 8500) - see Motorola G5 project. Letdorf (talk) 17:46, 26 March 2008 (UTC).
Yeah well, but it didn't go anywhere. The G5 didn't go anywhere.. But we might see the e700 core some time.. It's kind of G5:ish. If they get their thumbs out of their asses. -- Henriok (talk) 19:29, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Here we go.. e5500 core is their 64-bit Power Architecture processor. Now included instead of e700. -- Henriok (talk) 13:25, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

Merge with Moto/Freescale microcontrollers[edit]

Shouldn't we merge this template with the Template:Motorola microcontrollers? -- Henriok (talk) 13:25, 24 June 2010 (UTC)

 Done. --DavidCary (talk) 02:26, 13 July 2016 (UTC)

Should we also merge {{ Motorola DSPs }} into this template?

If so, I suggest undoing the rename of this page back to its original name, "Template: Motorola processors", because I consider a microcontroller a special kind of processor, and a DSP likewise a special kind of processor. --DavidCary (talk) 02:41, 13 July 2016 (UTC)
