The Sun UltraSPARC T2 (Niagara 2) entered the world today with eight processing cores and eight threads per core and a wealth of benefits over the UltraSPARC T1 such as greatly improved floating point performance, FB-DIMM DDR2 RAM, and an advanced cryptographic capabilities on top of a wealth of other innovations. What makes the Niagara 2 even more interesting is that all design blueprints are being made open-source under the GPL license at OpenSPARC. Additional information on this can be found on Jonathan Schwartz blog (Sun's CEO).
