    Default IBM unveils Power8 and OpenPower pincer attack on Intelís x86 server monopoly

    IBM has taken the wraps off the first servers that are powered by its monstrously powerful Power8 CPUs. With more than 4 billion transistors, packed into a stupidly large 650-square-millimeter die built on IBMís new 22nm SOI process, the 12-core (96-thread) Power8 CPU is one of the largest and probably the most powerful CPU ever built. In a separate move, IBM is opening up the entire Power8 architecture and technical documentation through the OpenPower Foundation, allowing third parties to make Power-based chips (much like ARMís licensing model), and to allow for the creation of specialized coprocessors (GPUs, FPGAs, etc.) that link directly into the CPUís memory space using IBMís new CAPI interface.

    Man i hope others are reading this. The power of this CPU is freaking insane. IBM has always had the lead when it comes to pure power but this is on a new level of WOW. The numbers and capability is hard to fathom in the X86 world. This makes INtels Knights whatever look like a play toy.

    Wow, that chip is nuts! Sounds like AMD needs to grab that for their server chips.
