angry tapir writes “Oracle will halve the number of cores in its next Sparc processor and instead improve its single-thread performance, a weak area for the chip but one that’s important for running large databases and back-end applications. The next Sparc chip on Oracle’s roadmap, the T4, will have eight cores on each chip, down from 16 in the current Sparc T3.”
