Do you happen to know which kind of CPU core the APM801xx has? A PPC460 based core like the APM821xx
has? A PPC405 based core? Or something else? Strangely, this information is omitted from Applied Micro's press release.
I don't know, but it seems to be a rather slow ALU. 800 MHZ are expected to deliver 1216 MIPS i.e. only 1.5 MIPS/MHz. IIRC the 460 core should do about 2 MIPS/MHz (like the e300). But I don't know any particular details, only picked up some noise from the net and http://investor.appliedmicro.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=78121&p=irol-newsArticle&ID=1424482&highlight= .
Whenever you're sad just remember the world is 4.543 billion years old and you somehow managed to exist at the same time as David Bowie.
