IBM announced PowerPC 970MP (Antares). The new processor is a dual-core version of IBM's PowerPC 970FX.

Based on the IBM press-release the new dual-core CPU is targeted for customers who desire a low-cost, high performance, 64-bit, symmetric multiprocessing (SMP)-capable system in a small package with ranges from 1.4 to 2.5 GHz.
Each of the two 64-bit PowerPC 970MP cores has its own dedicated 1MB L2 cache, resulting in performance more than double that of the PowerPC 970FX.
As Apple switched to Intel, it will be interesting where those new IBM PowerPC CPUs are going to show up in.

Intel and AMD already announced their Dual Core CPUs. And there is of course the trigger of it all the multi-core CELL cpu.
