&gt; because in reality the POWER6 p570 achieves 1.84 times more performance than the T5120.<div>&nbsp;</div> According to tpc-c benchmarks 8-core, 32Gb RAM power6 system cost more than $600K (without storage, software, etc), ie 10 times costly vs $60K for T5120 (8-core, 64Gb RAM)/<div>&nbsp;</div> Not exactly apples to apples is it ?

Maybe if Sun published on TPC-C we could actually see real data for price/performance comparisons : )
