 Apple and its dual-core option

"According to an article published Wednesday in The Register, it seems that Freescale Semiconductor Inc., a subsidiary of Motorola Inc., is set to unveil a dual-core processor at Microprocessor Forum in San Jose in October. "Freescale's dual-core PowerPC is expected to sport an on-board memory controller, this one capable of supporting DDR 2 SDRAM, along with a Gigabit Ethernet controller. It is also expected to use the Rapid IO bus, according to past Motorola pronouncements, though MPX bus support is also anticipated to maintain backward compatibility… (with speeds) beyond 2GHz." "
