Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Hardware site CPU Review has published a set of benchmarks which claims that the Linux kernel compiles 16 per cent faster on an AMD processor than an Intel chip. According to reviewer Bill Henning: "The fastest x86 CPU I've tested to date (April 12, 1999) for kernel compilation is the AMD K6-III/400. While it is priced about 3.8 per cent higher than a Pentium II 400, it is more than 16 per cent faster at compiling the Linux kernel". CPU Review has tested a number of processors at compilation, with the results available here. According to Henning, he has now tested 52 separate chips for Linux compilation. ®
