At the Freescale Technology Forum this week, Freescale announced their “Advanced Multiprocessing” QorIQ series. It will be based on a new core named the e6500, which is multithreaded, 64-bit, runs up to 2.5 GHz, and supports the Altivec SIMD instruction set. Freescale claims it will achieve up to 4x the performance of their current flagship, the e500mc-based 8-core P4080. The first e6500-based processor will be called T4240 (apparently moving away from the P-based naming of current QorIQ), and it will feature 12 cores (24 threads) plus hardware accelerators, with “initial availability in early 2012.”
