Even though the 12 way model may in total CPW be a larger system than the 4 way, it really matters what the speed of an individual processor is rated at. For example, I have a model 820/2435 single processor that is rated at 600 cpw. I have a 720/2063 dual processor rated at 810 cpw, but each processor would only be 405 cpw. So it wouldn't surprise me if the 'smaller' single processor 820 out performed the 'larger' dual processor 720. (note that SMP would change this since a job could run on more than one processor). Try dividing the rated CPW by the number of processors and see what the result would be on each system for a single processor.

Since this is a single program/process it's going to boil down to i/o throughput and processor speed. Is the 12-way using older CPU's than the 4-way? -Jim James P.
