Sorta like an old G5 based Mac and a 360? Last I heard was the 360 was a 3 core G5 or something. Incidentally is it Freescale or IBM who make the 360 chip?
Hell no. A 360 is not a souped up G5 Mac. The 360 is pretty much all custom chips.
Broadway is the same as Gekko, just with a higher clockrate. Think a 486@66MHz versus a 486@100MHz.
The GPU in the Hollywood chip (Hollywood contains both the GPU, the T1-SRAM and the ARM9 Core "Starlet") is similarly the same as Flipper but with a higher clockrate.
