Yes, we've done it! ;-)
Tomas just announced we've reached 500K QPS performance level in
OLTP_RO Point-Selects 8-tables benchmark, and I may only confirm it and
say you little bit more:
This is the best-to-best comparison between the all listed engines obtained on the same 32cores-HT server that I've used in my previously published benchmark results. Same workload, same conditions, updated players. All details about this and other tests results I'll provide during my tomorrow's talk at MySQL Connect conference (11:30AM), and then later publish them within another blog post..
Well, what else to say.. - MySQL 5.7 is preparing to become the next "the best ever MySQL Server release in history" ;-)
