Sun UltraSPARC T1
The T1 is a new SPARC microprocessor implementation that has both multicore and multithreaded. The processor has 8 CPU cores, and each core can handle four threads. Thus, the processor is capable of processing up to 32 threads concurrently. The Sun UltraSPARC T1 used to be called "Niagara".
As far as compilers the Sun Pro studio compiler is installed in /opt/SUNWspro and various older versions in /opt/compilers on the system. There is also a version of gcc in /usr/sfw/bin
