>> maybe Freescale rediscovers Altivec one day.
> I fear that won't happen.
Or maybe it will? From today:
"The aerospace and defense embedded computing industry is buzzing with rumors that Freescale Semiconductor Inc. in Austin, Texas, may be rethinking its commitment to AltiVec vector processing technology and its provision for floating-point processing in Freescale's latest family of QorIQ high-performance microprocessors. [...] The coming week may hold some interesting announcements, not only from Freescale, but also by some well-known embedded signal processing companies concerning the QorIQ and AltiVec. Stay tuned.
Maybe QorIQ T series
will be announced to have AltiVec? Or even some new QorIQ P series member?
