I am working with servers in cloud, and notice that even on x86 architectures, one "virtual CPU" equals 40%-50% of a real one. If the IBM fellows deliver a virtual CPU worth 60%-65% of a real CPU, they would win the race.

That "virtual CPu" thingie is going to take the place of the "minimum guaranteed upload bandwidth" for ADSL...
