Hello. Got a question for everyone here. My company has asked me to research the performaace differences between and 8 way processor vs. 4 way processor server. The application housed on this server will be an application that relies heavily on SQL 2000. The cost of an 8 way proc. server is a huge, huge difference in regards to a 4 way proc. Microsoft (as MS does) is telling those in charge that it will make a huge difference. However, they cannot seem to provide any hard data to support this. Does anyone have any experience with an 8 way processor server AND can provide any sort of whitepaper or a link to one? Thanks in advance!
