Leading regional IT and communications solutions provider Fujitsu Asia today announced that the Primergy TX300 S4 tower server has delivered the best price-to-performance result in a new benchmark test developed in the US.

In an official “TPC Benchmark E” (TPC-E) test*, the Primergy TX300 S4 achieved 317.45 transactions per second (tpsE) and a price-per-tpsE figure of US$523.49. In comparison, no other servers with a similar system configuration could achieve a price-per-tpsE figure below US$600. The test result (available at shows that the Primergy TX300 S4 offers vastly superior processing power on a per-dollar basis, compared to other commercially available machines from competing vendors.

The TPC-E test simulates the online transaction processing workload of a stock brokerage firm, and provides a gauge of a server’s suitability for use in the brokerage industry. It was developed by the Transaction Processing Performance Council (, a US-based non-profit corporation founded to define transaction processing and database benchmarks.

“The fact that the Primergy TX300 S4 vastly outperformed competing machines is testament to its superior design. Although the product incorporates the same industry-standard components as servers from competing vendors, the TPC-E result shows that the Primergy range delivers the best price-to-performance result for the most demanding database systems and online transaction processing environments,” said Uno Motohiko, Vice President, Platform Solutions Group, Fujitsu Asia.

The Primergy TX300 S4 machine used in the TPC-E test was configured with:

  • two quad-core Intel Xeon X5460 processors
  • 64GB of random access memory
  • 188 hard disk drives, each with a storage capacity of 73GB and a maximum data rate of 3 gigabits per second
  • Microsoft Windows Server 2008 Enterprise x64 Edition
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Enterprise x64 Edition
