With the introduction of AltiVec technology, Motorola is again demonstrating its commitment to the PowerPC architecture and to meeting the requirements of next generation high performance computing applications. AltiVec technology expands the PowerPC's capabilities by adding high-bandwidth SIMD functional units to attack complex signal processing challenges. An example 2-D convolution was examined on both scalar and AltiVec processors. An AltiVec enabled processor provides a significant performance improvement over a scalar processor. General purpose processors with SIMD functional units will provide an aggressive performance growth path for embedded and computing systems designers, while lowering development barriers inherent in multiple architecture designs, thereby reducing the time to market and total system development expense
