Whatever happened to Moore’s Law? More specially, why is Oracle releasing a new SPARC processor with fewer processor cores and threads?
Oracle Magazine’s “Cloud to the Core” Special Report introduces the new eight-core Oracle SPARC S7 processor as well as new servers, a new engineered system, and a new cloud service based on the chip. The SPARC S7 includes the same Software in Silicon capabilities of the 32-core SPARC M7, but at a lower cost. And that means SPARC S7 is ideally suited for sale-out systems, a wide range of applications, and the cloud.
The bottom line: SPARC S7’s innovative engineering delivers high performance with commodity x86 economics.
