UltraSparc T1 aka Niagara review

Just finished reading Anandtech's detailed (but incomplete as they promise to delve deeper into it) review of Sun's new UltraSparc T1 chip. Among other things, it says : "SUN's Ultrasparc T1 is little less than a revolution in the server world. How else would you describe a 72 W, 1.2 GHz chip that is almost 3 times (in SpecWeb2005) as fast as four Xeon cores at 2.8 GHz, which consume up to 300 W? " and "The words "paradigm shift" and "disruptive" technology have been abused so many times that we don't like to use them. But in the case of the T1 CPU, it wouldn't be exaggerated to say that it is the herald of a new generation of server CPUs, and that it has disrupted the server market." and "The SUN UltraSparc T1 simply wipes the floor with the competition when it comes to performance per Watt. According to this metric, the UltraSparc T1 is 4 to 12 times better." Looks like we have a winner here! More can be found at :-)
