Motorola Inc has pointed out that the Cypress Semiconductor figures comparing the 33MHz Sparc and Motorola’s 88000 RISC chip quoted recently (CI No 966) are inaccurate: the $6,885 price tag of the Motorola chip refers to the Hypermodule ECL implementation rated at 50 MIPS (compared with the 20 MIPS Cypress rating), and the standard chip is $2,100, against $2,984 for the Cypress chip: Motorola also says the die size of the chip is 6 square inches, considerably smaller than the 23 square inches that Cypress requires to fabricate its Sparc.
