While looking up information on IBM POWER chips, I ran across a nice page which listed a ton of microprocessor information. The real gem of the page wasn't relating to the information I was seeking but rather a blurb about John Sculley talking to DEC's President about using Alpha chips to replace Motorola 68K processors. I knew Apple looked at several different companies for chips at the time but it is interest to know why any relationship with DEC never happened. Apple history would have been radically different had DEC been more enthusiastic about the wonderful Alpha processor they had engineered during these discussions.
(scroll about half way down or just search for Sculley)
