Hi there !
Can anybody tell me what exactly (besides the virtualization hypervisor) the main potential advantage of the sun4v CPUs is? I heard rumors that they are markably slower than current US IV+ for certain applications - but I don't know what "certain" means. IOW: is the above allegation true and if yes, is there a rule of thumb when to use which CPU?
