Today high-end multi core processors based on x86 architecture used in personal computers are able to run simultaneously up to 12 threads achieving floating point performance near of 100 GFLOPs while graphics processing units can process hundreds of threads simultaneously reaching theoretically up to 2700 GFLOPs in single precision operations.
The MPC7400 supplements AltiVec with a more powerful floating point unit, which is fully pipelined for double-precision operations, not just the single precision pipelined by the G3, and there is also an internal memory bus that is 128 bits wide, twice that of the G3.
