No Love Greater than the Love of Moto
Hello there forum chummies,

Today I received my little moto collection from across the seas...

so what better to do than to take a nice picture of them and put them here....

(Zetty Style)

Mmmm yummy.... (btw yes the PPC was manufactured IBM, but it was designed by Motorola and IBM)

take a moment..... take it all in....... Mmmmmmmm yummy....

updated pic for correct cpu designations (well spotted adolescent)

which is the fastest 060 you have ??

adolescent 04 October 2007 06:52

Shouldn't that be XC68LC040RC33B

Zetr0 04 October 2007 10:09


Indeed, i had honestly thought i had written a 'B' LOL figure....


The fastest 060 is the MC68EC060RC75 wich is a 75Mhz 060, however this is unlikely to have an MMU and an FPU at that speed would die. so it probly wont have that either. so for single (integer) calculation it would be the fastest.

A few years towards the end of motorola's production of the 060 chip they decided to release "a cost effective" version known as the "EC" these would not have an MMU or CPU circuitry on the cpu. However supply could not reach demand and so Motorola just produced the 68060's in with the fpu and mmu, but these were not tested and sold under the "EC" marking, the only way to know for sure if you have a "fully functional" is to look at the die / serial number of the chip and then to test it!

so if you wanted the fastest "FULL" 060, then an XC68060RC66 (66mhz) would be it. however forsaking the FPU you could have an XC68LC060RC75 (75Mhz)

since theres only a few things that use the FPU (raytracing / quake) and virtually nothing (other than linux for Amiga) will use an MMU so the decision is yours....

-edit- I thought u were getting a load of FULL 060s... They all seem to be ECs... Kinda need the FPU tbh..

Zetr0 04 October 2007 10:22


LOL the one i have here for you sir is another one, its marked up as EC but has a full MMU and Full FPU at 50mhz :D

keropi 04 October 2007 10:58

what a controversial thread! :p

Zetr0 04 October 2007 16:25


Indeed, I had a PM recently telling me so.... strang eh ?

hows things amigo?

I think everyone should post pics of thier moto love.... (okay some can keep it to themselfs) but CPU shots welcome.....

Zetr0 05 October 2007 14:59

Just edited the pic to reflect the 040's "B" ness :D

Dont worry, that white fluid on them is just Thermal Grease. :shocked :laughing

Zetr0 05 October 2007 18:32

@mr 0rga5m

unless it belongs to Ironclaw eh?

DrF 05 October 2007 18:33

If the fastest is 75Mhz how much further does anyone think it would go?
Has there been any overclocking attempts?

Zetr0 05 October 2007 18:42


With the right mask and die revision there are reports of an 060 managing 100mhz safely.

Alexh would know more
