Make Xeon faster than Itanium2 using SPARC
By John Clingan-Oracle on Aug 18, 2006
Hmm, an interesting technology.
Note this particular quote:
"Weigel asserted that QuickTransit performs well. Sparc-Solaris software generally runs faster on Xeon-Linux using Transitive's software than on machines with Sun's 1.5GHz UltraSparc IV+ chips."
Thanks to the Benchmarking Guru, we have some data showing that UltraSPARC IV+ outperforms Itanium2 again and again.
Therefore, using the transitive property in concert with Transitive's QuickTransit and similar logic, HP and Intel customers can "generally" replace their HP-UX Itanium2 servers with Linux Xeons running SPARC binaries.
