    I'll admit I haven't looked hard, but perhaps those who are in a similar situation as me... trying to determine what machine makes the most sense for various workloads around the $3K dollar mark, will benefit from collecting some benchmarks here.

    I plan to start digging into this further (and I'll post what I find), but in the mean time, if you are aware of any such benchmarks, please reference them here.

    Cheers! :)

    Here's another one

    The following one is just bizarre... it raises more questions than answers (e.g. why test a quad with anything other than 6GB? Why is the 16GB 2.26 nearly twice as slow as the 12GB test run, etc.).

    Ok, but why wasn't the Quad tested with 6GB?
