Subversion's SPARC Solaris buildbot slave is a T1000.  It takes about
6min to build Subversion and 25min to run the regression tests on a RAM
disk. By way of comparison, my Linux desktop is about one year old and a
similar build is less than 30sec and the tests take less than 3min.  The
regression tests do not reliably predict the performance of real
Subversion servers since the data sets in the tests are tiny, but this
shows that for some workloads a T1000 is an order of magnitude slower
than an x86.
