IBM launches fastest chip in India

IBM, the giant in chip manufacturing, has launched its POWER6, the chip
which is considered by many as the fastest computer processor chip in
today's world. The company's System p570, which is touted as the
world's most powerful mid-range consolidation machine, and its
BladeCenter JS22 servers that are powered by the new chip, both will be
available in India. The chip has got many capabilities which the
previous ones does not find in them. The power considerations is taken
care off to a large extent because this chip falls under IBM's 'Project
Big Green'. It works at a speed of 4.7 GHz, but uses the same power as
POWER5 which reduces the power consumption to a large extent.
