and the fsb and non die mounted mmu still bites them in the a$$.

Even with the best of those numbers its only a 25% improvement, and none of the benchmarks were typical uses for a server. Start a few large transfers of data from disk to ram or disk to network and then do the same benchmarks and see if the benchmarks still hold up.

Everyone is raving about Intel dual core and core duo chips but where are the server type benchmark records?
