06 Dec 2010 Oracle Processor Core Factor for SPARC Systems [23739]
SPARC64 VII+ Now a Core Multiplicator of 0.5

For many systems, the cost of the solution can be dominated by the Oracle license fee. A systems solution with CPUs that have a lower Core Processor Licensing Factor may end up with a lower overall cost than one with a smaller number cores that have a higher Oracle Licensing Factor (aka multiplier).

Oracle has set the multiplier for the newest SPARC chips - the SPARC T3 and the SPARC64 VII+ - very aggressively. The SPARC T3 has a multiplier of 0.25 - the same as the 1.0 GHz UltraSPARC T1 (as featured in the T1000 and T2000). The SPARC64 VII+ has a multiplier of 0.5, which is less than the 0.75 multiplier of the UltraSPARC IV, IV+ or the SPARC64 VI, VII which powered older systems like the V490, E6900 and E25k servers.

Note: the IBM POWER6 and POWER7 systems have a multiplier of 1.0. The latest AMD and Intel systems a have multiplier 0.5, twice that of the SPARC T3.
