Holy cow, IBM says they can run the Power6 at 6GHz. Hey, I still think lower-clock-rate/more-cores is the way to go, maybe because I’m primarily a Web Guy; for example, see Paul Murphy on SPECWeb2005. But still, you gotta be impressed, that’s one $@*&!# hot chip. I’m thinking of OS X running on one of these... Oops, too late.
