Another thing I'll mention, where I disagree with some of the benchmarks listed, is that I don't think those tests gave a fair estimate of the i7's hyperthreading capability. Hyperthreading is for multitasking, so that is when it is going to shine brightest.
It would be nice if someone, at some point, conducted some 'real world' testing, by maybe encoding some audio or video, while playing it back, while running a Photoshop filter.
