T4080 (8 virtual cores), the T4 family has a 3x performance scaling factor within a pin compatible package.
With frequencies scaling to 1.8 GHz, integrated 1Gbps and 10Gpbs Ethernet, hardware acceleration and advanced system peripherals, these products target applications that benefit from consolidation of control and data plane processing in a single SoC, such as services cards, microservers, ADCs, WOCs, intelligent NICS, RNCs
Twelve dual threaded e6500 cores built on Power Architecture® technology on T4240/T4241, each with one AltiVec® engine (eight and T4160/T4161 and four on T4080/T4081)
Arranged as three clusters of four e6500s, each sharing a 2 MB L2 cache (two clusters on T4160/T4161 and one cluster on T4080/T4081).
Up to 1.8 GHz with 64-bit ISA support (Power Architecture v2.06-compliant)
Three levels of instruction: user, supervisor, and hypervisor
1.5 MB CoreNet® Platform Cache (1MB on T4160/T4161 and T4080/T4081)
