Benchmarks "In January we published a review of the AMD Shanghai Opteron CPUs on Linux- when we looked at four of the Opteron 2384 models. The performance of these 45nm quad-core workstation/server processors were great when compared to the earlier AMD Barcelona processors on Ubuntu Linux, but how is their performance when running Sun's OpenSolaris operating system? Up for viewing today are dual AMD Shanghai benchmarks when running OpenSolaris 2008.11, Ubuntu 8.10, and a daily build of the forthcoming Ubuntu 9.04 release."

I'm genuinely surprised at how poorly OpenSolaris did in their tests. It won 1/19 tests and that was java-based. Also, these seem to be somewhat realistic tests unlike the last set of benchmarks posted (how many clicks does it take to install?).
