The race for quality has no finish line- so technically, it's more like a death march.

'easily outrun' sound so generic. Exactly what is the easily outran situation is IBM talking about? Heat, processing power in since of Ghz ratings, raw processing power of the actual proc, what do they mean?

BTW: So maybe AMD did correctly by selecting SOI for their AMD64 procs?

From the article that made the claim.

"Glaskowsky also believes Apple will be able to get the part up to 3GHz by the summer - a promise made by CEO Steve Jobs last year. "That's an aggressive target," Glaskowsky notes, "but it should be achievable. The 970FX has the necessary architectural sophistication in its deep pipelines to make this speed possible, and IBM has the necessary technology in its CMOS 10S process.

"At 3GHz, the 970FX should outrun the chips we expect from AMD and Intel in the same time frame."

But the story doesn't just centre on clock speed. Because the 970FX is a die-shrink, it should come in at just over half the size of the 118mm˛, says Glaskowsky. The upshot is that IBM should be able to punch rather more 970FXs out of a 300mm wafer than Intel can produce 112mm˛ Prescotts. AMD is still on 200mm wafers and will be until 2006.

That yields IBM "a large cost advantage" over Intel Prescott, says Glaskowsky, which bodes well for Apple's ability to balance margins against system cost going forward."
