Default Sun UltraSparc T1

Probably many of you already know about it ...
For the others, Sun has recently (and sooner than expected) delivered a new Processor named UltraSparc T1 providing 2 to 8 cores per chip and 4 threads per core: a maximum of 32 threads on 1 chip !
I guess other constructors (Intel, AMD, ...) will also increase the number of cores per Chip in the next future (in 2 years I think) from 2 to much more.
Sooner or later, mprime should move to multi-threading, I guess ...
