Summary
ppc64 is an identifier commonly used within the Linux, GNU Compiler Collection (GCC) and LLVM open-source software communities to refer to the target architecture for applications optimized for 64-bit big-endian PowerPC and Power ISA processors. ppc64le is a pure little-endian mode that has been introduced with the POWER8 as the prime target for technologies provided by the OpenPOWER Foundation, aiming at enabling porting of the x86 Linux-based software with minimal effort. Details These two identifiers are frequently used when compiling source code to identify the target architecture. 64-bit Power and PowerPC processors are the following:
  • PowerPC 620
  • RS64 – Apache, RS64-II Northstar, RS64-III Pulsar/IStar, and RS64-IV SStar
  • POWER3 and POWER3-II
  • POWER4 and POWER4+
  • PowerPC 970, 970FX, 970MP and 970GX
  • POWER5 and POWER5+
  • PPE in Cell BE, PowerXCell 8i and Xenon.
  • PWRficient
  • POWER6 and POWER6+
  • POWER7 and POWER7+
  • A2, A2I (used in the Blue Gene/Q) a
