Re: PlinkerTind Re: The worlds fastest cpu

"....You do the math." Well, actually here is the math that really matters - I don't know a single customer that has any long term intention of using SPARC. Those that still have some SPARC are all migrating off it. Now, I am no fan of IBM Power and some of IBM's hilarious benchmarking shenanigans, and if you search these forums you'll find my ridiculing of their "one CPU performance" (where one CPU used 32 CPUs' RAM and interconnects). But, if I was given the choice between Power and SPARC as a platform tomorrow, then I'd choose Power over SPARC for 99% of use cases without any hesitation.
