    I wonder if they have to pay the Terminator people for the use of t1000 and t2000. Very original names there.

    Negative. Sun Microsystems is learning at a geometric rate. Soon the T1000 will become self aware and the fate of the authors of the movie will be decided in a microsecond. Reply

    "The UltraSPARC T1 processors each house 16KB instruction, 8KB data cashes and 3MB of integrated L2 caches"

    Should be "8kb data caches" not cashes

    Tell us what we REALLY want to know.... how does it perform on Doom3? :Þ Reply

    quote:

    To compare that to typical multi-core/multi-chip Xeon processors, the T1000 and T2000 servers come in at roughly one-third of the cost of an equivalent Xeon-based server.


    With 8 cores, no kidding!!!

    Throughput applications will perform marvelously on this (if they're threaded well enough) but lightly-threaded stuff will perform horrendously.

    To tell the truth the T1 kind of reminds me of the Cell except that its different cores will probably destroy the SPUs in flexibility.

    LOL, "...morph into liquid metal..."

    I think its TDP is going to be around 85W, which is not too bad for an 8-core, 32-way CPU. Strictly in-order, though, so don't expect Opteron performance in lightly-threaded apps. May be useful for an insanely-threaded HTTP client or something, though.

    I was actually going for the Terminator reference, but nobody else saw that. :[

    Its TDP is pretty darn low. Its an interesting chip, to be sure.

    I meant HTTP server, just in case some people didnt figure that out. Reply
