The colorful bars is what I read, if you compare the 4.7GHz things to the 2.2 Power5+ I would say it isn't very efficient compared to its older brother. 60% faster, over twice the clockspeed. The Xeons in the list are MP's, which means they are memory starved Netburst processors. In a few months we have Tigerton which will come a lot closer to the Power6 but is a lot cheaper. I'm not impressed by the Power6.
"Met een prijs/prestatieverhouding van 3,54 dollar per transactie per minuut scoort het systeem ook beter dan de Power5+-inzending, die op 4,42 dollar uitkwam."
Cheaper for more performance
