eWeek is reporting that IBM is working on a dual-core version of the PowerPC 970 processor. Designated the PowerPC 970MP, the chip will apparently arrive sometime next year. Each of the 970MP's processor cores will have its own L1 and L2 cache, a design that IBM expects to "expand the PowerPC's top frequency capabilities."
Both AMD and Intel are working on dual-core chips for next year, but IBM may have an advantage because they've already squeezed two cores onto a chip with the POWER4.
