IBM Power6 CPUs to hit 4-5GHz soon

Posted on Monday, May 14 2007 @ 08:15:23 CEST by

IBM told its partners that the Power6 processors will soon hit clockspeeds between 4G and 5GHz, with each SMT2 core having access to 4MB L2 cache memory and 32MB L3.
A Power 6 can thrust data of 64B/two cycles to Data Level One cache, with an aggregate L2 bandwidth of 127B/5 cycles per core. Data from the SMP fabric onto the chip will achieve 67 per cent times 40B/two cycles at peak.

A dual core chip will have nine execution units per core, with 790 million transistors on a 341 square millimetre die, with seven way superscalar performance and two memory controllers per chip, while it will be built on SOI 65 nanometre CMOS.

Big Glue will offer a whole series of alternate Power 6 bins, swapping cache depending on what customers want to build into their systems.

IBM claims that its 65 nanometer technology will offer a 30 per cent performance improvement over 90 nanometre chips, and use a a high performance SRAM cell.
