    Just to annotate, recent BlueGene system is built around 8192 "Power BQC" processors at 1.6 GHz each, which I assume have PPC A2 cores (like PowerEN).

    ARM says "1.5GHz – 2.5 GHz", not "beyond 2.5GHz+".

    14,000 DMIPS with how many cores at what clock frequency? Without these information that figure is of almost no use.
