IBM POWER6 Sub Torpedoes Itanium Montvale Cruiser

“Since its ISSCC talk early this month, IBM POWER6 did capture the imagination of quite a few processor buffs around there – not me, yet, as I’m used to see great CPUs failing since the Moto 68K and Alpha days – and also raise debates on several tech forums. While IBM still keeps most of the official POWER6 data closely guarded – I’d expect more during Hot Chips or Fall Processor Forum some six months from now – there is enough right now to assemble a rough picture of what may be in for the users of the new chip.”
