Intel E7500 versus ServerWorks GC-LE/HE

I would be interested also to hear people's opinion
on why either the Intel E7500 (=Plumas) and the Serverworks GC-HE
chipsets are supposed to be better than the I860-based
systems which offer RDRAM?  Why is there such a push to
get chipsets that support DDR SDRAM--especially when the
price isn't much different anymore?
