The PowerPC750 is *on* the graphics processor, and is what powers  
it.  It says DVP (Digital Video Processor) on the tag of the GPU, and  
is a serviceable (replaceable) unit on a separate daughter card.  The  
cable networking processor is a separate PowerPC e500 embedded unit  
soldered to the motherboard, and is not replaceable.

The box is manufactured by Motorola (DCT6412).
