The Tech Report has take a look at the Intel Woodcrest:
Bensley is very similar to the Glidewell workstation platform for Woodcrest, but it has no real capacity for PCI Express graphics—you only get one PCI Express lane with Bensley. We're not generally comfortable with testing in a remote location, outside the confines of our own labs, anyhow, but without any pre-prepared server benchmarks in hand, we were limited to a relatively small set of non-server-oriented tests. I apologize in advance for the test selection. Hopefully, the numbers you do see will offer some sense of how the Woodcrest-based Xeons will compare to the Opteron.
