Big Blue gives 90-nano boost to PowerPCs

IBM has begun to produce PowerPC chips using a new manufacturing process that promises to improve their speed and energy efficiency. The tech giant plans to announce on Friday that it has started mass production of PowerPCs on the 90-nanometer process, which refers to the average feature size on the chips. Big Blue is expected to describe a 2.5GHz version of the chip made on the 90-nanometer process at the International Solid State Circuits Conference.
