    Two IBM Transistors -- This cross section of a new IBM POWER6, 64-bit dual-core microprocessor was photographed using a scanning electron microscope and shows two transistors, shown as a gold color, out of the 790 million on this thumbnail sized chip. At 4.7 GHz, the dual-core POWER6 processor doubles the speed of the previous chips with virtually no increase in electrical consumption.

    World's Fastest Chip -- IBM today introduced servers based on its new POWER6 microprocessor. POWER6 is the fastest microprocessor ever built and contains many technological breakthroughs that provide twice the performance with virtually no increase in energy consumption. The IBM System p570 servers pictured here are being readied for delivery at IBM's Rochester, Minnesota manufacturing facility.

    IBM POWER6 -- Hundreds of IBM POWER6 microprocessors on a silicon wafer. The wafer is cut into individual chips that are then packaged and then built into new IBM servers that offer twice the performance with virtually no increase in energy consumption. Each chip has two cores, runs at speeds up to 4.7 GHz, and contains 790 million transistors.
