    Too bad the 970GX wasn't dual core or have 4MB L2 cache like the Woodcrest. Not sure what the FSB would be (could assume 1500) but that is a negligible difference from the Woodcrest's 1333 since other parts of the system would be the bottleneck.

    Xeon DP 5160: Dual Core 3.00 GHz, FSB1333, 4 MB L2 cache.
    970GX: Single Core 3.00GHz, FSB 1500, 1 MB L2 cache.

    Sorry to burst the excitement bubble but this is rather unfair to compare to old AMD processors i mean like it says the Xeon is comparable to AMD's Opteron which we all know the Opteron outperformed the Xeon and then it also says that the Woodcrest is 125% faster then the Xeon and only 60% better then the Operton, so the only fair comparison would be compare the woodcrest to the next upcoming AMD chip and this was not done.
