Networking Performance of UltraSPARC T1

Sunay “FireEngine” Tripathi wrote an interesting piece about Niagara and networking:

The result is amazing network performance for this beast. Performs 5-6 times the performance of your typical x86 based CPU.


We are also planning to hide the core running networking from the application effectively getting TOE for free without suffering from the drawbacks of offloading networking to a spearate piece of hardware.
