Jim Gray tests Thumper

Jim Gray has tested Thumper on windows server 2003 and ntfs, in collaboration with Johns Hopkins U.
The summary is very positive:
This is the fastest Intel/AMD system we have ever benchmarked. The 6+ GB/s memory system (4.5GB/s copy) is very promising. Not reported here, but very promising is that we repeated most of the SkyServer Query log analysis on this system – performance was 3x to 100x what we experienced on previous systems – largely due to the 64-bit SQL and to the 16GB of RAM. We hope to report the SkyServer query results soon.
Nice box,Thumper
