is demonstrating a dual quad-core Xeon system at the Microprocessor Forum
that is supposedly faster than four quad-core Barcelona processors. The machine
is equipped with Intel's Workstation Board S5000XVN, 2 quad-core Xeons 5365,
clocked at 3GHz and 16GB RAM. And the results are simply impressive: Intel
scored over 4,900 pixels per seconds versus a little bit over 4,000 for AMD's 4
sockets quad-core (Barcelona) system. Again, this is an AMD 16 cores system
versus Intel's 8 cores V8 machine.
