I am getting very alarmed by this discussion as we just took delivery
of ten 2x quad core systems to be deployes as heavy webservers in order to
replace the dual core ones. probably under 7.0 as 6.3 wont boot PAE and
they have 16 gigs of memory.

when I get a webserver up and running I will also do some benchmarking and
see if I get the same results. I am simply running straight forward Obj-C 
code on mine.
