    PPC had its moment but I'd say its ready to retire. If you want high parallelization, SPARC is better. If you want super high parallelization, GPUs are better. If you want low-power, ARM is better. If you process low parallelization with high complexity, x86 is better. On top of all of that, I get the impression AMD's current offerings perform roughly the same as PPC but at a much lower cost.
