    Update:

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

    Confirmation:

    "IBM's hardware people cleared up the mystery about the processor at the heart of the BlueGene/Q super, saying that it is [...] a 16-core Power A2 processor"
