Do I see an error you made Paul? Why does your older article on future chips(Link: target="_blank"> state that Montecito gets
SPECint_base_rate2k: 62
SPECfp_base_rate2k: 87

with this quote: "The effects of improvements in compiler technology or platform support (chipset, FSB speed, memory etc.) over the next 12 to 18 months were not included in the performance estimates."

While your new article says(Link:
SPECint_rate_base2k, 4P: 96
SPECfp_rate_base2k, 4P: 120

Do you mean that now your estimation of spec-rate performance is off since you estimated back then SPECint_base_rate2k: 62,

and now you say

SPECint_rate_base2k, 4P: 96

So which one is right? Will Montecito legacy perform at SPECint_rate_base2k: 96 at single processor, or 96 at 4 processor?

Oh yeah and another question: I heard Maximum power dissipation of Madison 6M was 130W, and its TDP: 107W, and I also heard that Montecito will have 100W power dissipation rather than 130W of the previous generation Itaniums so does it mean that Montecito will have 100W max power dissipation or 100W TDP?
