Early Nehalem i7 Benchmarks

PC World in Greece has some early benchmarks of the Intel Core i7 965, 940, and 920, that show the newcomer kicking some serious butt vs. the older Core2 Duo and Core2 Quad cpus from Intel.  The Core i7 is a quad-core, with two threads per core, so you have eight processors from Windows point of view.

I cannot wait for the server version of this CPU family, it should be very effective for SQL Server workloads.
