Very good article. That's why like RWT :)

I was surprised with modified Pentium 4 (looks like Cedar Mill-based) and achieved results. Indeed it looks promising. I wonder what would be results for shorter pipelines (e.g. for something Core/Core2/Northwood based) and (from pure curiosity) for longer ones (e.g. they could use Tejas, which was rumored to be 40-stage design). I guess it will be better, but how much better?

The only thing which I think is missing (but I guess it might not be available) is how cost of manufacturing such processor relates to manufacturing the one based on planar design.

Best regards,
Marcin N.

P.S. Maybe somebody knows, if Intel already tried to stack memory on Polaris (Terascale project)?
