This year has brought big advances to the CPU industry with the arrival of the Intel Xeon 5500 series "Nehalem" and the AMD Opteron 2400 series "Istanbul". While many different benchmarks have been published comparing both systems, they all have seemed to fall a bit short in showing an accurate comparison of the two platforms..
So, while the Nehalem may have the best performance per core and higher efficiency, the Istanbul does a good job of making up for its deficiencies by adding additional cores.
