Oracle Breaks Records With New TPC-C Benchmark

Running on an IBM System p 570 with two dual-core 4.7 GHz POWER6 processors, Oracle Database 10g Release 2 achieved 404,462.54 tpmC (transactions per minute) with a price-performance ratio of $3.50/tpmC -- a record achievement in 4-core performance.

"This TPC-C benchmark result, as well as those from the recent two-tier SAP SD Benchmarks, reinforces Oracle Database 10g's performance and scalability leadership," said Juan Loaiza, Oracle Senior Vice President Systems Technology. "It also demonstrates that Oracle Database takes full advantage of advances made in servers like IBM's p 570 to continue providing customers with unprecedented performance and scalability."

I wonder what 11g will do?
