And performance wise, have you tested your machine with low latencies? That's where the power really shows.
Indeed it does - if you read my recent review of Scan's Core i7 Music PC in SOS February 2009, look at the performance graph I created:

Notice how only the Core i7 performance holds up with the 32-sample buffer size, whereas with the other processors you can end up only being able to run half the number of plug-ins.
I was very impressed with the bench marks you showed. I have the mag.
Unlucky for me at the time I'd just purchased a Q9450.
