RealWorldTech: At the Microprocessor Forum, IBM took the wraps off their next generation processor, the POWER6, which is targeted for general availability in mid-2007. The POWER6 boasts twice the frequency of its predecessors, along with a substantially improved system architecture and some minor additions to the core including the AltiVec instructions and binary coded decimal. IBM is claiming to double performance, which is a bold claim indeed, considering IBM's lead in many server benchmarks.
