The source spoke about the processor that serves as the basis for the on-board computers installed on the Perseverance rover. In fact, this is the same processor that was used in the 1998 Apple iMac G3.

More precisely, a special version of the PowerPC 750 processor, manufactured by BAE Systems for almost two decades. It is protected from radiation and is called RAD750.

A single-core processor, operating at a frequency of 110-200 MHz, is manufactured at 250 or 150 nm, operates in a wide temperature range and is afraid of ionizing radiation. It is the basis of the single-board computer of the same name. Various variants of this computer are successfully used in numerous spacecraft, including, by the way, the previous rover – Curiosity.
