motorola 68060

motorola 68060 in Technology

processor
A 32-bit microprocessor from Motorola, the successor to the Motorola 68040. The 68060 is the highest performance 680x0 family processor currently (April 1995) available. It has 2 to 3 times the performance of the 68040.
The 68060 is probably the last development from Motorola in the high performacnce 680x0 series. They don't want to compete with their own PowerPC chips. The 680x0 series is intended more for embedded systems, where it is already very popular. New developments here seem to integrate more peripheral functions on chip rather than increasing processing power.
