The Inquirer: DURING THE the past few months, Hewlett Packard has achieved MMB3, SAP SD, and TPC-C x86 4P benchmark records for its AMD Opteron based Proliant DL585 quad server. It was only last month that this server entered the sales channel.
Last March was the first of those records. The benchmark in question was Microsoft’s Exchange Server 2003 MAPI Messaging Benchmark 3 (MMB3). The server was configured with AMD Opteron 848 series processors (2.2 GHz). It achieved a MMB3 score of 7800, which was 6.8% better than its nearest competitor - an Intel Xeon MP based HP Proliant DL580 G2.
