This bodes well for the hardware, IMO:

For those that don't know, Watson is POWER7 based, IBMs, current top of the line. So it has a POWER7 derivative CPU with "lots of eDRAM" which is also good for high bandwidth. If I had to guess its probably a 3 core POWER7 for ease of porting for 360, but a 3 core POWER7 would be leaps and bounds faster than the 3 core xenon proc.
