We certainly can pass TPC-C. I'm curious what you mean by 1/4 though? On
similar hardware? Or the maximum we can scale to is 1/4 as large as Oracle?
Can you point me to the actual benchmark runs you're referring to?

But I just made an off-hand comment that I doubt 8.2 could pass TPC-E which
has much more stringent requirements. It has requirements like: 

  the throughput computed over any period of one hour, sliding over the Steady
  State by increments of ten minutes, varies from the Reported Throughput by no
  more than 2%
