Power processors are available up to the speed of 1.8 Ghz. Multi core chips are also available based on power architecture.
Power Cores…
QorIQ = based on e500 core, dual core or single core Ex: P1020
PowerQUICC= based on e600 core, use in communication domain 

   PowerQUICC I(MPC8xx)                 PowerQUICC II(MPC82xx)

   PowerQUICC II Pro(MPC83xx)         PowerQUICC III (MPC85xx)

Host Processors = based on e600 or e500 core MPC7xx, MPC7xxx, MPC6xx

Automotive Controllers = MPC5xx, MPC5xxx, freq 66 Mhz

FEATURES OF POWER ARCHITECTURE

·  RISC processor
·  speed up to 1.5 Ghz
·  Support for SIMD ( AltiVec in terms of freescale) technology results in 128 bits vector operations
·  Support for MMU ( Memory management unit), this means support of virtual memory concept in RTOS
·  signal processing engine provide support for signal processing
·  Enhanced energy management solution, new energy modes are added. These modes are JOG, packet lossless deep sleep mode
·  support for high end buses like express PCI, VME etc
·  multi core processor are also available like MPC8640D chip

Name of some latest power chips
MPC8640D, MPC8572,  MPC5674 etc

Vxworks
from
WindRiver
PROPRIETARY
The Wind River VxWorks platforms are complete, flexible, optimized COTS development and run-time platforms that work out of the box and across the enterprise. The platforms provide a powerful, scalable development and on-chip debugging environment built on open standards and industry-leading tools; the industry's most trusted commercial grade real-time operating system (RTOS); and tightly integrated run-time technologies.

INTEGRITY
from Green hills
PROPRIETARY
The INTEGRITY® operating system technology is the most secure technology in the world having been certified by the NSA-managed NIAP lab to EAL6+ High Robustness. No other commercial operating system has attained his level of security. No other commercial operating system has entered into an evaluation at EAL6+ High Robustness.

montavista Linux
Commercial Linux MontaVista Linux delivers the time-to-market advantages of a proprietary platform along with the control that would be expected from open source Linux. As a pre-tested, integrated platform, MontaVista Linux can be installed quickly and developers can be up and running right away. But as a Linux platform, development teams have complete control, with the ability to customize the platform using home-grown code, or modules from the vast libraries available to the Linux community.

THREADX
PROPRIETARY
ThreadX is Express Logic's advanced Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) designed specifically for deeply embedded applications. ThreadX has many advanced features, including its picokernel™ architecture, preemption-threshold,™ event-chaining,™ and a rich set of system services. Combined with its superior ease-of-use, ThreadX is the ideal choice for the most demanding of embedded applications

QNX




PROPRIETARY
What makes QNX Neutrino realtime operating system (RTOS) so remarkable? It's a true microkernel operating system. Under QNX Neutrino, every driver, application, protocol stack, and file system runs outside the kernel, in the safety of memory-protected user space. Fault resilience is built right in. As a result, virtually any component can fail - and be automatically restarted - without affecting other components or the kernel. No other commercial RTOS provides such protection
