Fujitsu Quad-core Sparc64 VI+ Info

Fujitsu’s Sparc64 VI+ processor, code-named Jupiter is due for release in 2008, is a four-core processor with clock speeds of at least 2.7GHz. The chip will be built with a Fujitsu’s 65nm manufacturing process and is relatively large at about 460 square millimeters in surface area. Fujitsu’s Sparc64 VI, a dual-core processor code-named Olympus has been taped out already. Sparc64 VI and VI+ use the same data pathway, called a bus, to connect to the rest of the system, meaning that the newer chip will plug into the older systems. As with the Sparc64 VI, each core of the VI+ can execute two simultaneous instruction sequences, called threads. Fujitsu calls its threading technology VMT, or vertical multithreading. The Sparc64 VI will be able to execute four threads, and the VI+ eight. The 423-square-millimeter Sparc64VI will consume about 120 watts of power.
