DDR Xeon Chipsets

This question was asked a few months ago but not answered.  Are stream or
other memory benchmark data available for the new DDR Xeon chipsets,
specifically the Intel 7501 and 7505 and the Serverworks GC-SL and GC-LE?

In particular, I was looking at the Supermicro x5DEi which uses the GC-SL
chipset.  It seems that this north bridge uses only a single DDR channel.  I
would think that this would seriously impact performance.  The GC-LE and the
7501/5 chipsets use dual DDR channels which seems more appropriate.

Any insights here?  Any numbers?

Thanks,

Mike Prinkey
