Default Barcelona's floating-point performance

When it comes to Barcelona's floating-point results, there are two major issues to think about here: two-socket versus four-socket and clockspeed scaling. First, all the systems in the reviews that I saw were dual-socket. It has been my contention for some time now that Barcelona's real chance to shine will be in four-socket systems. This is because Barcelona's main advantage is in the bandwidth advantages afforded it by its system architecture, and those advantages really begin to kick in with four-socket configurations.
