Hello! There is a mistake in the table 2-1 on page 31. It says that POWER7 has 2GB of L2 cache memory per chip. It should be 2MB. All the rivals are crying now, as we say in Russia! ;-)

Mmm.. thought this was fixed. You are correct. It is 2MB.

There are a couple of entries for "enclusure" - I suspect it should be enclosure unless we need a "clue" to find space.

Thanks! I've located and corrected the two errors and they will be online the next time the papers are revised.

p65 of the PDF has a table with "Internal GX Bus 1&2 19.712 Gbps" - should that not be GBPs or GiBps?

Looks like we lost our caps lock. Yes, the duplex rate is approx. 20 GBps (bytes).

it's wrong file (old version). I'm waiting new draft.

Mr. Tikhonoversky, are you looking for REDP-4798?
