13 Apr 2010 Oracle Solaris Studio Exploits Parallelism Capability of Intel's Newest Processors [23035]
Offering 16 Hardware Threads in 1 Socket With a 1U Box Presenting Up to 8 Sockets

In the white paper "Oracle Solaris Operating System -- Optimized for the Intel Xeon Processor 5600 and 7500 series," the processors' Hyper-Threading technology and its parallelism capability is the highlight of the 45-page paper for Vijay Tatkar. The Hyper-Threading technology provides two hardware threads per processor core and is capable of executing threads in parallel within each core. This means an 8-core Intel Xeon processor provides a total of 16 hardware threads. "That packs a walloping SPECint_rate of 1250 and SPECfp_rate of 887," Tatkar writes in his April 2nd blog entry.
