Well IBM just announced that they are running their POWER 5 processor. And not only that they are building a big a$$ computer for the Department of Buildings. Read Here More than 12,500 processors. How long do you think it will be before a Wintel head says that the a dual Itanium 3 will be faster. Hopefully IBM will keep developing like this and we can see some very nice macs coming our ways in the next years.
