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.
