It isn't released yet, but you're referring to the "Victoria Falls"
version of the T2 processor which is due in the second fiscal half of
2008  (T5xxx refers to servers featuring the T2 CPU).

Initial reports were that systems built on Victoria Falls would support
256 threads, but that no longer appears to be the case.

That must be wonderful!  I don't understand it at all.
