OpenPOWER's Order-of-Magnitude Performance Improvements

In a new post on the Ptak Associates Tech Blog site, Rich Ptak and Bill Moran weigh in on the technology acceleration announcements by IBM and other OpenPOWER Foundation members.

“Performance improvements come in different sizes,” Ptak and Moran write. “Often vendors announce a 20% or 30% performance improvement along with an increase in the price/performance of their product or technology. Much more rarely, a vendor delivers an order-of-magnitude improvement. An order-of-magnitude improvement equates to a performance increase of a factor of 10.”
