It depends what you want to do.  XSB has tabling, which may come handy.
Although I have plans to add this to SWI-Prolog, I'd not wait for that :-)

SWI-Prolog has a mature and fast RDF parser, efficient RDF storage module
and, distributed as seperated packages, a SeRQL implementation with efficient
query optimization and a Sesame compliant HTTP interface as well as a 
vizualiation library (Triple20).

Then there are differences in speed, scalability, portability, 
interoperability, etc.  So, you need to be much more specific before anyone
can give a good motivated answer.

    Cheers --- Jan
