I very much doubt you'll find any uniprocessor UltraSPARC II-based
system that'll match the raw CPU performance of a 1GHz x86 system.
The better question to ask is probably something like, "What US-II
system will give me reasonable desktop performance?"
Assuming a uniprocessor system, I'd say any US-II with a clock speed
of 450MHz or higher will feel "modern" -- but don't expect it to
benchmark like a 1GHz x86; for that, you'd need a relatively expensive
