First, I assume you mean "16" processors in server B, rather than 116.

You need to define "slow":  time to process a single request, or # of 
requests it can handle?

Server B's clock speed is about half that of A, so I would expect 
(everything else being equal) that it would run at ~ half the speed of A 
for a single request.  However, given that it has 4x as many processors, 
it should be able to handle ~ 4x as many simultaneous requests, but each 
of them will still take about 2x as long as they would on A.
