This is a classic apple-orange comparison. In order to be useful, you'd have
to mention what the other system was -- if it's an Itanium-1 at 800 Mhz
compared to a 3.0 Ghz modern system, that matters.

But, better yet, can you just point us at a set of SPEC OMP benchmark
results? I looked at your OEM partner pages and didn't see any
benchmark results.
