2 X cores @ > 1.5GHz each.
1MB cache per core
2 X 64b DDR2 memory controllers, 667MHz with ECC
2 X PCI Express
4 X 1Gbit Ethernet "MACs" with hardware acceleration
RapidIO
Power consumption: 15 - 25Watts.
Technology: 90nm silicon-on-insulator (SOI)


Press release on MPC8641D:

Technical details:

-------------------------------------------------

The one you probably want is the positively excitingly titled MPC8641D, it's a dual core e600 (same core as 7448) with 1MB cache per core, multiple Gigabit Ethernet controllers (with hardware TCP accelleration) and (possibly) a DDR-II controller.

It's not due anytime soon but should be quite a beast when it's out.

--

None appear to be due to be available for quite some time yet but those going to SNDF should at least get a look at them.

    From the article I linked to:

    "The 7448 will sample in the first half, with PowerQuicc members slated for the second quarter, and the single- and dual-core 8641s will sample in the second half of 2005."

    Sampling is not the same as shipping so they could be a year or more away.

    ...unless the article has it wrong.
