Wrong on the demise of the Sparc.     Oracle just posted a massively 
record breaking TPC-C benchmark using their new Sparc T3 servers, 
something like 30 MILLION TPM.

There's also Power aka PPC, formerly used in Apple Macintosh computers, 
and still used on large scale IBM AIX Unix servers, the Power series.   
These also are very high performance.
