Altera accelerates PowerPC for data centres

Altera has joined the IBM OpenPOWER Foundation which develops data centre chips using PowerPC Altera’s FPGA-based acceleration technologies.
FPGAs provide PowerPC users with configurable hardware so reducing opex by increasing performance while using less power.

IBM and Altera have already worked together to create a coherent interface between PowerPC 8 processors and Stratix V FPGAs.
