I have a few quick questions for HP-UX Admins who have hands-on experience with HP's quad-core Integrity servers (sometimes called "i2" or "Itanium 9300 series" servers).  The specific models include BL860c i2, BL870c i2, BL890c i2, rx2800 i2, and Superdome 2

1. Based on your real-world experience, how do the "i2" servers compare to older Integrity servers in terms of performance?  

2. Are the "i2" servers any different in terms of reliability than older Integrity servers?  How so?

3. What benefits, if any, have you seen running the latest release of HP-UX 11i v3 compared to older versions v3 that were released 2-3 years ago?

I would love to hear from several HP-UX Admins.  Thanks in advance for your insights on these issues!
