    That much is obvious. Even just one single magnitude faster would put it in POWER9 territory :-) And as I said, it will even be slower in FPU operations (except for code that is natively compiled for the SPE in order to avoid FPU emulation).

    I think there have been used Sam460 boards or systems going for same as or less than what new Tabor boards or systems will go for, like this Sam460 board for 300 or 350 EUR.
