Great observations and questions Mike. I have no doe size, cost or power numbers from Broadcom. Anyone out there have this data?

The XLP980 and the CaviumCNxx are similar in so many ways but yet different. They both seem to have a slew of accelerators specific to the networking segment, both use MIPs based CPUs and are on 28nm. But the CPU implementations are different. Netlogic's is an out-of-order multi-thread while Cavium is an in-order single-thread. I wonder which is better suited for the target application. Interestingly the Intel processors are also out-of-order multi-threaded so it might appear that the XLP can better compete with Intel.

20 out-of-order cores, multi-threading and multi-chip coherency. That is certainly a beast. Rick, any idea what the die size and power consumptions are.

Intel, Comcast, Cisco just announced the XFINITY Wireless Gateway. It uses Intel's Puma 6 silicon. The Wireless Gateway from XFINITY Internet is capable of up to 16 bonded downstream channels supporting speeds up to 640 Mbps. The Puma 6 is the first DOCSIS silicon to reach up 1 Gbps downstream by bonding up to 24 DOCSIS channels and up to 240 Mbps upstream by bonding up to 8 DOCSIS return channels
