Oracle's database and high-performance workloads will run faster with the company's latest SPARC M6 chip, which has been tuned specially for the company's applications.

Another SPARC chip got attention at Hot Chips, with Fujitsu sharing details about its latest mainframe chip called SPARC X+. The 16-core chip runs at 3.5GHz and higher, and can be used in mainframes with up to 64 sockets. Each core will support two simultaneous threads, with the ability for a mainframe to run 2,048 threads simultaneously. On-chip software helps accelerate database applications, said Toshio Yoshida , director in the processor development division at Fujitsu.

Fujitsu and Oracle collaborate on chip development. Oracle also resells Fujitsu servers.
