Intels Jim Fister speculates about Rock

Quite interesting comment about other peoples view to the Rock processor in a blog normally dedicated to interconnect technolgies. In the article headlined with “Geology of Sun” the author writes:

Jim Fister, a senior technologist from Intel's Itanium group I interviewed recently, has been reading between the lines in Jonathan Schwartz's blog about the Sun Rock microprocessor. Jim believes Rock will handle all communications through embedded memory, including processor-to-processor links. That could open up a novel space for Sun as it uses Rock to build big symmetric multiprocessing machines for database servers.

As usual, i won´t confirm nor deny any speculations.
