Benchmarks With two Intel Quad-Core Clovertown processors and eight sticks of Kingston FB-DIMM DDR2 Phoronix set out to see the level of memory performance in an octal-core environment. Phoronix has tested the memory in single, dual, and quad memory channel configurations. Read the article to see how the Intel Xeon 5300 performs in various Fully Buffered Dual Inline Memory Module configurations.

Hey nice link man. Never saw that. Are there any Sun hardware running on Intel quad core processors? I would sure like to see the numbers from them!

No. Sun are an Opteron & SPARC-only shop.

As for the article, there's nothing unexpected in it - Intel craps on AMD for floating point performance; AMD craps on Intel for memory bandwidth. Clovertown doesn't change a thing - it just makes it more polar.
