    IBM POWER6 Microprocessor, 300mm Wafer

    Date added: 2007-05-21

    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.
