Default Intel V8: All eight cylinders fired up?

Technically, from the point of pure CPU MIPS / MFLOPs, this is the fastest PC ever reviewed here - after all, you got 96 GFLOPs peak in 64-bit precision (around 80 GFLOPs obtainable in Linpack benchmark), and humongous 21 GBytes/s of memory bandwidth. Eight cores at 3 GHz each, processing four ops/cycle each, and with dual FSB1333 - not bad at all! Even Apple put them into their current top-end machine.

and I kept the airconditioning off right here in Singapore (no, there is no cool weather here, unless you count today's "cold spell down to just 30 C"). So, you can guess it was quite a warming experience, so to say.
I last time I was in Singapore was Dec 1973 .... 32°C on X'mas eve. Without AC it is sticky and wet year long, to do a review next to this 8x8 with AC off is crazy.

I don't get it , how is this an answer to AMD QuadFX ?

It uses fb dimms (just like clovertown ) , so what's the difference with the Intel server systems?

I thought the advantage of the AMD QuadFX system was it uses regular (=cheap) DDR2 memory.

*cheap* and AMD QuadFX/Intel V8 don't go in the same sentence
