Dominant Duo: Wintel Through The Years


Benchmark Crown

At the Windows Server 2003 launch, Paul Otellini -- then Intel's president and COO -- claimed that Wintel had achieved the world's No. 1 single-system TPC-C industry benchmark in the battle with high-end Unix midrange and mainframe systems. The record-breaking performance was achieved with a Hewlett-Packard Superdome server running on Intel's Itanium 2 processor with Windows Server 2003 and SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition.
