Thomson Financial has reported markedly improved performance of its One-price server and its portfolio management application Portia during benchmark tests of systems based on the Intel Xeon processor and its hyper-threading technology.

Intel's hyper-thread technology enables multiple threads of software applications to be run simultaneously on one processor.

The performance of Thomson's One price-server, using Intel's system, improved by 200 per cent, compared with the performance of the existing server architecture using the same software configuration.

In addition, the companies managed to accelerate the performance update for nearly 1200 portfolios in Portia eightfold, using the systems based on the Xeon processor and hyper-threading technology.

The Portia system's performance detail report was also less time-consuming, completing in less than a tenth of the time of current benchmarks.

"Based on this powerful performance and new technology, we can look forward to the Thomson One platform delivering a high level of analytic applications to institutional investment firms in the near future," says Louis Eccleston, president, Thomson Financial sales and trading group.
