Well, it improved.

Given that we have already seen the decrease in power consumption achieved by the 65 nm Cedar Mill, the results of the double core counterpart Presler are about what everybody would expect. Not only does the new chip run both slightly faster and cooler, it will allow Intel to go after higher clock speeds while maintaining its thermal envelopes (95 W or 130 W max).
But, I find it amusing that if this particular benchmark brand had resulted in AMD as the winner, what would you users have had to say.

Exactly.

To people that will spend maybe $200-$300 on a new cpu, the benchmarks that these high-end intels get don't mean crap.
More $200 CPUs are likely to be sold than $1,000 CPUs... If you were selling the most bad-ass top of the line CPU for $4,000, how many would you sale?
chances are, only companies and rich people would buy it, and thats not a lot of people.

that overly expensive CPU would not come out on top, for that reason alone.

you guys...compare apples to apples here. We are talking about how Intel can take the top PCMark score. Why can't AMD? Its just the fact that the FX-60 is an unlocked Toledo. Thats why. Its inferior to the Presler. Even when both are overclocked using the same cooling. Presler will come out on top.

Four Opteron 880's...that's eight PHYSICAL processing cores because the Opteron 880 is dual-core. SCSI isn't practical, but it's faster than what your "dream computer" has and far superior. So yes, it will own your dream computer.
