It's almost there and it will hurt …. I mean, Power Systems with the new processor Power8.
It has something to spook its predecessor. Take this as some examples of comparison.

•    22nm of SOI
•    12 Cores SMT8
•    512 KB SRAM L2 / core
•    96 MB eDRAM shared L3
•    Up to 128 MB eDRAM L4 (off-chip)
•    Up to 230 GB/s sustained bandwidth
•    Integrated PCIe Gen3
•    … and many other features

But what will really change things, it's CAPI (Coherent Accelerator Processor Interface).
See the diagram below, and I'm sure we'll talk about in 2014 … Remember my words !
