Time for some new benchmarks

I think that a number of the current benchmarks are going to be made slightly redundant by the arrival of multi(>2) core processors.
I wonder if this is why the results don't show the expected performance gains when using 4 cores?

so, where is the TPC-C ( or other) type benchmark for these systems. They sure keep the CPU busy.
