Some anonymous source suplied me with core i7 benchmarks on MacOSX
CPU is i7 920 with ddr3-1066 memory, cpux misidentified freq and multiplier for it, actualy it’s 2.66ghz and mutliplier is 20
now the benchmarks itself, they are very impressive, looks like ddr3 tri-channel memory helps it a lot.
quad core penryn at 3.2ghz getting 421.5 points in same test, with ddr2-800 memory.
quad core penryn at 3.2 ghz getting 307.5 points in same test, with ddr2-800 memory.
xbench(no hdd test included):
same test with 3.2ghz c2q
P.S. voodoo 10.5.5 kernel was used
