SQL Server 2005 - Itanium or Xeon

Hi,

We have a new database server that has 4x2 IA64 Montvale CPUs.

This was supposed to replace a 4x2 Opteron Santa Ana 1218 system.

The Database is (and was) CPU bound rather than IO bound. The new server (after tuning by HP) is delivering 25% less throughput than the old one. The DB is small enough to fit in memory (32GB) in both cases...

Should we be looking at a 4x4 7400 series Xeons instead?

Thxs, Chris
