IBM's claiming they can get the Power6 to 5 GHz; they've already hit 4.7.

The Register thinks that's favorable for them.

The benchmarks arrive just ahead of IBM's Power6 server launch. The rumor mill says IBM will unveil its Power6 gear, starting with midrange systems such as the p570, on Tuesday.

Thus far, IBM has been reluctant to discuss the Power6-based systems' performance. But, with chips running at 4.7GHz, IBM should clean up on a wide variety of benchmarks even if customers don't recompile their software as is needed for absolute best results with Power6.

A number of skeptics have told us that IBM will struggle in the near-term to produce 4GHz+ chips in volume. IBM, however, has been telling customers that it will have plenty of speedy chips to go around.
This is important for the business side, but not relevant for the desktop crowd. And it's highly unlikely you'll see Apple switching back to IBM chips anytime soon.
