I'm working through the aquisition process for a quad Opteron box right
now. I'll be benchmarking it against a quad processor p630 as well as a
quad Xeon after we get it and posting results here. But that's about a
month or two from now.
I expect that the results will be strongly in favour of the Opetron,
especially the price / performance since the Opteron box is being quoted
at about half the price of the p630 systems.
One thing you may wish to consider is going with lots of 10kRPM SATA
disks instead of 15kRPM SCSI disks. Two companies that I'm aware of
offer quad Opteron solutions with SATA raid:
