I think I'm gonna be sick:

This mentality **in a database professional** completely escapes me. It brings to mind that I just "upgraded" my Blackberry to one that has 2x the CPU and 5x the RAM -- and still works just as bad as the one it replaced (if not worse).

Anyone from the Oracle camp advocating/predicting hardware-based "tuning"?

Rant over.
