Power6 postponed?

Besides of getting the confirmation, that Heise posts really stories that need badly the “advertisment”-tag there seems to be an hidden gem of information in the annoucement:

Incorporating forthcoming IBM POWER6 technology, the machine is expected to be one of Europe's most powerful supercomputers when completed in 2008. The Max Planck Society for the Advancement of the Sciences awarded the multi-million dollar contract to IBM after carefully evaluating proposals from several vendors. POWER6 is the advanced microprocessor that will power next-generation of IBM eServer systems planned for 2008.

Or as the ITjungle summarize it:

The interesting bit in the Max Planck announcement is that IBM refers to Power6 as the next-generation processor that will be the engines in the next generation of "eServer systems planned for 2008." Only two months ago, IBM was saying that the dual-core Power6 processors were expected in the second half of 2007 and would be running in the range of 4 GHz to 5 GHz.
