IBM Power 6 to break 4GHz!

The Enquirer has an article that points to a CNET interview with an exec at IBM , Ross Mauri. In this article, Mr. Mauri mentions that the Power 6 chip (due in early- to mid-2007) will debut at somewhere between 4 and 5 GHz. However, CNET has another interview with no less than the chief architect of the Power 6, Brad McCredie, which was published back in Febrary . In THAT article, Mr. McCredie ALSO stated that the Power 6 would come out at somewhere between 4 and 5 GHz. In addition, they expect to hit these performance levels while maintaining the same power envelope as they see for the Power 5 chip.

So, why is this significant?

Makes you wish apple had stuck with the IBM Power chips...

I hope it pushes AMD to be highly competitive against Intel though

AMd will bounce back then well see conroe two or something that will completly destroy what ever they come out with. That or a good marketing campaign.

"The motherboard installation section essentially said "refer to motherboard manual for installation instructions". My motherboard manual of course said "refer to case manual for further installation instructions"."
