That article seems to imply a current Xeon processor system with a great graphics card would be just as powerful to the average user as a Nehalem system. I don't know if I would agree with this. The Nehalem has a much faster and wider memory channel. I think desktop applications that do video processing would benefit greatly on Nehalem. Games, not so much.Correct. Nehalem is big for servers and workstations. For consumers web surfing, emailing, playing games and fiddling with music and photos, they won't notice a difference, except a smaller wallet.
