Pretty cool stuff!

From the IBM webpage:

DB2 UDB is the world's fastest database with the #1 TPC-C benchmark in the world that delivered performance over 2.7 times faster than the nearest competitor. Moreover, DB2 UDB V8.2 has just published the fastest TPC-C result on 8-way Intel® Itanium® 2 running 64-bit Window Server 2003. DB2's strong performance advantages are reflected across all platforms supported by DB2 UDB.
