    > PowerCore, I don't recognize that one. Any info?

    "At the center of China’s emerging OpenPOWER-based ecosystem is CP1, the first POWER chip for the China market, from a Chinese chip design company named PowerCore. The first China OpenPOWER system with CP1 will come to market this year. CP1 will be utilized by Zoom Netcom for a new line of servers called RedPower, the first China OpenPOWER two-socket system coming to market in 2015."

    "Suzhou PowerCore Technology Co. Ltd plans to deliver working versions of its CP1 (below) this summer. It will come in 8-, 10 and 12-core versions, each with a 64K data cache and 32K instruction cache. Like the IBM chip, the CP1 has 96MB of L3 cache, 115GB/s memory bandwidth and can support 32 lanes of PCIe 3.0."

    That would be quite a cool candidate for a multicore 64 bit MorphOS system :-) It's not much more expensive than a X5000 but with a lot more punch. And I could use it for years and years without it getting too slow for mainstream stuff.

    Oh yeah, I like that.
    We can all dream what could have been.

    Then again, hey Mark, how much do you want to port to this?
    I'd be dumb enough to buy one.

    The minimum production quantity (and thus number of pre-orders) would be 2000 pieces according to this article:
