Hi all,

Barcelona 1.9GHz vs Xeon 2.0GHz

has anyone here benchmarked these two available 8-core solutions? Speed/core 
wins probably the intel side but what about scaling on 8 cores? Has the 
NUMA/Hypertransport architecture an advantage here?

In price, they are very similar. Xeon is of course available with higher 
frequencies but also increases in cost/cpu very fast.
