Niagara-2 and Oracle

I guess I'm not the only one who asked himself (and Oracle) - what's the factor for Niagara-2 CPU? Is it 0.25 as for Niagara-1 (except 1.4GHz?!) or is it 0.75? First Oracle guy said it's 0.25... unfortunately they call back and said it is 0.75 actually.

That's bad...

Here is more info about Xeon QuadCore:
"Oracle has priced for the Xeon QuadCore Processor at the rate of 1 Processor based on
the single socket justified as "When licensing Oracle programs with Standard Edition One or Standard Edition in the product name, a processor is counted equivalent to an occupied socket" for a 3-year licence. Thus, Oracle used the combination of "Processor, not Core" for SE/SE-One and 50% of List price for a 3-Year Licence."
