PowerPC is a microprocessor that was developed by three developing companies, namely IBM, Motorola, and Apple they are known as Aim, a derivative of their names. It was built with reduced instruction set computer, which is abbreviated as RISC that speeds the work of million instructions per second (MIPS). PowerPC is based on earlier power architecture by IBM owing to the fact that it has similar RISC instruction for the microprocessors. Intel basically chips.

Intel chips are Nehalem based. Intel chips are very much faster than the PowerPC. Intel chips have higher power consumption because of the techniques that are used for its higher performance and its high clock speed. PowerPC is a Power-based feature or architecture; its main feature is its reduced instruction set computing (RISC). While Intel processors are basically Nehalem based architecture in which their main feature is the Quick Path Interconnect (QPI) technology.
