Those are servers CPUs which costs in the thousands.
No way that a "cheap" version will come - the PowerPC market is so small that only huge margins might make it profitable.
PowerPC is a dead horse and IBM is flogging it as otherwise they wouldn't be able to raise a finger against Intel's monopoly.
Even if one of these CPUs makes its way in the X10000, X60000 or whatever, that would just make them repeat the same error of making it horribly expensive, out of reach for most users and devs (which in turn will make the ecosystem stagnate and slow/kill sales altogether).
Actually, while we're on that, are there any numbers of how many X1000s were sold?
