System: SuperMicro H8QG6
4xAMD Opteron(tm) Processor 6168
Total 48 cores
128G RAM
Areca 1680 w 512M battery backed cache
32 15k SAS 147Gig drives

pgbench -i -s 100
pgbench -c 48 -t 10000
tps = 7777.626762 (including connections establishing)
tps = 7808.976047 (excluding connections establishing)

If I run them for much longer, it'll drop down a bit and average about
4 to 5k sustained tps.
