The IBM System i POWER6 570 has machine type and model number 9406-MMA which is used effectively, only as an ordering specification. The former model number 570 is [now] the model _name_, thus remaining the _System i 570_ across each of POWER5, POWER5+, and POWER6 as its underlying architecture. I am not clear on why the QMODEL [had to?] reflects what it does; part of license keys, or so which system was ordered is visible on the system.?
The draft Redbooks document redp5052 refers to the System i POWER6 570 as a 9406-MMA in some cases to explicitly refer to the POWER6 570, because within the same document, references are made to all three variants. For a couple characters more, the replacement of [almost] all occurrences with the moniker _POWER6 570_, would be just as explicit; that is probably the intent for the final document.
