According to Duraid Madina

  If you'll re-calcualte SPECcpus data to frequencies of Opteron
will be available just now (1.4 and 1.6 Ghz, and 1.8 Ghz in May -
according unofficial russian source), then Xeon has more high performance.
What is about price, then 1.6 Hhz will have the price about $670-$690
(but 1.4 Hhz chips will be *much more* cheap).

  "Today" is not the best day for IA64, because It2 will be very
soon excahnged to Madison w/1.3-1.5x speedup. I don't like
x86 architecture (IA-32), but today I can't wait Deerfield :-(
and I think about Opteroon also ...
