No, I think I've seen mention of the A2 before and the impression I got was that IBM had designed it for specialized tasks like the network processors that Freescale has focused on.
Lately it seems like a lot of the PPCs introduced aren't really well suited to our market. Its become hard to argue with AOS fans about the PA6T (not that I try to), when floating point support is so weak on a large number of other new PPCs that have been introduced.
Thanks for pointing out the error on that post. I corrected it as, obviously, there was never a G6.
