  Before the sparc T3 was out (it has been available for a few months

  check that in the doc since then (not sure they even published
  one...), I only saw it there (page 7):
Adding these instructions, available on any other processor since epoch,
is a major step forward for Oracle...furthermore these chips also have a
target speed of a blazing 1.4 GHz!  :-)

  Fujitsu's recent sparc64 are supposed to have an integer FMA that
  works on FPU registers.
Fujitsu's sparc processors have actually been decent for a long time,
but we have never had the opportunety to run GMP on any of them.
