This semi relates to the smt4 discussion. IBM has had more threaded cores before, and this is what they say they gain by going up in threads for 1 to 8.

Indeed IBM does have a nice implementation but they are also not x86. I think they said their SMT2 was 50% faster than Intel. they had the luxury of duplicating a lot of stuff I think.
