RISC PROCESSORS

It's incredible how powerful are the RISC microprocessors to impose on the market first with the Power PC (Macintosh) and then with ARM (Raspberry pi and all its similars).Macintosh PPC were very powerful machine for the time and also very expensive, now with ARM processors the computers are everyday smaller and everyday more powerful and cheap. This is the Moore's Law!

This is a RISC Power PC 601 microprocessor of 1992 compared to the size of a Raspberry Pi A+ Computer! They are similar in size!
