Nehalem by quite a bit. Nehalem is 25-50% faster than the current 45nm Yorkfield quads clock for clock so even if Deneb equals their performance clock for clock , which would be a decent improvement over the 65nm phenoms, nehalem would still have a significant advantage.

6144kb + (4 x 512kb) + (4 x 128kb) = 8704kb (8.5MB)

Probably Nehalem. By how much is speculation.

I'll be sticking to Deneb.
They'll be cheaper than Nehalem, anyway (the CPU itself, the 790FX/SB750 vs x58 motherboards, and DDR2 vs DDR3 RAM)
And I don't like Intel.

exactly. You can use existing AM2+ boards with DDR2.
There's always the option of DDR3 with AM3 boards, but it's not worth the price of DDR3 IMO. even DDR2-1066 can be had cheap now.

hmm interesting, guess we'll have to wait and see what happens with nahalem, but i'm an amd fan, so I might just go with denab when it releases.
