SPEC CPU2006 is out - with a world record for Sun Fire E25K!

Yesterday, an article in Heise Newsticker (German language) pointed me to the release of SPEC CPU2006. I was quite impressed by the results - with Sun Microsystems publishing more results than other company.
Among them is an impressive result for the parallel integer benchmark CINT2006 rate for the Sun Fire E25K with 72 US-IV+ processors: 759!
With SPEC CPU2006, it is easier to compare the results for the CINT2006 benchmark with those for the CINT2006 Rate (CINT2006 running in parallel). Same applies to the floating point benchmark suite, CFP2006. The base result of 1 is identical for all four SPEC CPU2006 benchmarks - it's the result of the benchmark suite on a Sun Ultra 2.
