Default Intel Bloomfield clock for clock 45% faster in 3DMark Vantage CPU Test

Another interesting hunt over at Computex is definitely the Intel Nehalem and we managed to get our hands on a 2.66GHz Bloomfield running on a X58 Tylersburg board. Its 3DMark Vantage CPU score is pretty remarkable at 16334 which is about 45% faster than a similarly clocked Yorkfield.

mostly due to the hyperthreading though

But it is still 45% better performance. So if I run 8 versions of F@H I would see measurably higher performance than only 4 versions of F@H...

what I meant is that the performance increase will be directly related to the application you are using. F@H is an example.

Single threaded applications however won't see any improvement from HT

True enough. But if still using single-threaded programs, then they have no reason to be using a Quadcore Nehalem anyway, no?

No reason to not buy a dual-core, most programs are at least dual-threaded. Or there is always single-core 1.8GHz Conroe-L for $40
