Although not as dramatic as in SANDRA 2009, we still see a rather significant margin of victory for Intel Core i7 based systems. The only saving grace for the X3350 based system was its performance in CPU AES, but this was only by a narrow margin over the Core i7-920. A probable reason for this is that the CPU AES test only use the core X86 instructions which narrows the playing field a bit.
Again not as quite as pronounced as in SANDRA 2009, we still see a rather significant margin of victory for Intel Core i7 based systems.
Even the memory latency tests for the Intel Core i7 based systems surpass the X3350 based system by > 30% and this is running the two sets of memory at virtually the same timings.
