Motorola 68060

A 32-bit microprocessor from Motorola, the successor to the Motorola 68040. The 68060 is the highest performance 680×0 family processor currently (April 1995) available. It has 2 to 3 times the performance of the 68040.
The 68060 is probably the last development from Motorola in the high performacnce 680×0 series. They don’t want to compete with their own PowerPC chips. The 680×0 series is intended more for embedded systems, where it is already very popular. New developments here seem to integrate more peripheral functions on chip rather than increasing processing power.
