IBM POWER6 Microprocessor Technology Volume 51, Number 6, 2007 Click to enlarge
RD 51-6
The dual-core POWER6 microprocessor has double the speed of the previous-generation POWER5 microprocessor without increasing the energy required for its operation. It is currently the world’s fastest processor chip. The topics described in the nine papers in this issue include chip architecture, performance accelerators, chip and circuit design, power and heat management, enhanced virtualization, and reliability.
