Indeed, the Merced came with either 2MB or 4MB caches ... implying that
on some carefully chosen workloads it just might outperform a McKinley ;-)

I really doubt it though.

"Next the statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon 
the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those
conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse
to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince 
himself that the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep 
he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception." -- Mark Twain
