Just for the sake of precision, Intel 5600 series was codenamed
Westmere (dual-socket, 32nm, 6-cores, 3 memory channels). Intel 7500
series was codenamed Beckton, aka Nehalem-EX (quad-socket and beyond,
45nm, 8-cores, 4 memory-channels).
I would say that the 2x6-cores Magny-Cours probably has to be compared
