08 Jun 2011 SPARC Enterprise M8000 Outdoes IBM POWER7 on TPC-H@1TB Benchmark [24239]
HP Superdome 2 also Outperformed by M8000

Among the recent records set by Oracle technology is the one reported in SPARC Enterprise M8000 with Oracle 11g Beats IBM POWER7 on TPC-H @1000GB Benchmark. In this instance an Oracle SPARC Enterprise M8000 server configured with SPARC64 VII+ processors, Oracle's Sun Storage F5100 Flash Array storage, Oracle Solaris, and Oracle Database 11g Release 2 achieved a TPC-H performance result of 209,533 QphH@1000GB with price/performance of $10.13/QphH@1000GB, surpassing the performance of the IBM POWER7 server on the 1 TB TPC-H decision support benchmark.

The benchmark revealed that the SPARC Enterprise M8000 server delivers higher performance than the IBM Power 780 even though the SPARC VII+ processor-core is 1.6x slower than the POWER7 processor-core. The SPARC Enterprise M8000 server was found to be 27% faster than the IBM Power 780. IBM's reputed single-thread performance leadership did not provide benefit for throughput in this test.
