POWER7 Redefined

with 3 comments

I never have to wonder anymore. I never have to wonder anymore while waiting for a plane who starred in The Verdict. I just don’t have to wonder anymore while sitting in a movie theater waiting for the movie to start if the weather will be good enough to hike the next day. And I never have to wonder anymore while eating dinner at a sushi restaurant just how much a skydiving lesson costs and where to go to get it in Cleveland.

And now I never have to wonder anything anymore anywhere about Power Systems. You see, Android, Blackberry, and iPhone users can all now use the Power Systems Mobile Quick Reference to find out all about Power Systems and the amazing announcements today.

And whereever you are today, don’t forget to review these sites for all the performance news:

  • Benchmark Web Pages
  • Performance Data Tables
  • Systems Performance Reports
  • Announcement Press Release
  • We used to keep a huge dictionary near the dining room table just to get an answer. Sometimes we had to call my brother-in-law. But now the answer to the SPECfp_rate2006 of the new IBM BladeCenter PS704 is no further away than a couple of taps.

    1. Hi. Are you wondered that for some countries, the list-price of Power7 is 3-fold higher than list price in the U.S. (even without the 45% discount)? And all your tests with the prices are wondering deception.

      • Hi and thanks for your comment. IBM will review the pricing to ensure it has been set correctly. Prices do vary greatly from one country to another based on several factors, including currency conversions and fluctuations, sales and import taxes, cost of labor and local discount practices. We strive to provide the best possible value with our systems and would recommend contacting the local authorized IBM representative or partner to construct a specific configuration and price.
