AnandTech Website Database Performance

The AnandTech Website DB is much less I/O bound than the Forums DB, simply because we're dealing with a much smaller database whose access pattern is mostly composed of selects (reads). Here it's quite easy to find yourself CPU bound:

The Opteron does extremely well here, not only outperforming its predecessor but also the 2.80GHz Xeon (with Hyper Threading enabled) by a good 13%.
