 Sun: Can you smell what the Rock is cookin'?

Lots of innovation at Sun.

"Sun took a lot of architectural risks with this chip, some of which are probably at fault for the part's rumored delay, but to go into detail on everything that Tremblay packed into his short talk would expand this post unduly. So I'll just zero in on two aspects of Rock's design: out-of-order retirement and chip-level layout. These unique architectural and organizational features distinguish Rock from the rest of the high-end server fold, and make it one of the most theoretically interesting designs to come down the pike in a very long time."
