While the memory bus has a little more latentcy on the 6500 than the single
CPU boxes, there is no way running on different CPUs should cause a noticeable
performance impact on somthing like GEMPAK. 

What compiler options did you use to build gempack? 
Are you up-to-date with FORTE and Solaris patches?
Are you using the same binary on the U10 and the 6500?
Are the Solaris versions the same on both machines?
How's the memory usage on both machines?
