    It may depend on the workload mix which you were considering, and some more environmens ....

    For example,
    please see
    TPC-C, TPC-E, TPC-H, so on ... in TPC - Homepage

    It was not to specific to compare SQL Server 2008 vs DB2 9.7,
    you may notice some sense about performance aspect of DBMSes.

    For example,

    (As of Nov 2013 ...)
    Top in TPC-E -
    was IBM System x3850 X5
    Top in TPC-C -
    was SPARC SuperCluster with T3-4 Servers
    Top in TPC-H -
    was Dell PowerEdge R710 using EXASolution 4.0
    ...

    Both are decidedly faster and cheaper than each other... Depending on who you ask!
    A vendor or testing agency can give you a number, but unless you know EXACTLY what that number means and how it applies to your needs, then it means nothing. Without a significantly better understanding your requirements and experience, that's the most concrete answer I can give. Measuring performance and computing the cost of the measured system is one of the most difficult problems we face, since there are many facets to both sides of the problem... Without knowing exactly which performance (out of potentially thousands of measurements) is important to you, and what components of cost (out of potentially hundreds of parts), the number of measurements and their permutations is unmanageable.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.
