Uhh.. did ya check www.intel.com ? Seriously. Intel has the most
complete documentation of any processor company out there, full
pin-out shouldn't be all that hard to track down (hint: it's probably
in the data sheets for the Xeon processors).

I think he means PowerPC 604e, not Socket 604

Intel makes PowerPC CPUs? ;-)

Thanks.
Actually i have allready been there :)
I have only found the BGA pinout so far, besides in the pdf document:

http://www-3.ibm.com/chips/techlib/techlib.nsf/techdocs/F158B0815C18E78087256AE8006BA3D5/$file/pid9q604e3_v1_4.pdf
On page 16 the sentence: "IBM both offer a ceramic ball grid array (CBGA)
package. IBM CBGA packages have identical pinouts." don't make much sense
to me!

Did they mean to say: "IBM both offer a ceramic ball grid array (CBGA) AND A
PIN GRID ARRAY (PGA) package. IBM CBGA AND PGA packages have identical
pinouts." ???

The chip does exist in a PGA package because I have one, so they have made
at least one!

Yep that's right it's the old PowerPC 604e made by IBM/Motorola.
IBM name it PPC604e and motorola MPC604e.
I have a 200Mhz version in an IBM RS6000 model 140 computer.

I read that too (looking for the same information). It makes sense to me.
"We sold only the BGA parts, so the documentation was purged of all
instances of 'PGA'". ;-)

It could be, but I somehow doubt it. Are the pins in the same
configuration?

It may have never existed in the wild, so the documentation doesn't
support it.
