Simulating Phenom with Opteron

AnandTech is the first site out with benchmarks of AMD's new Barcelona core and they've done exactly what AMD didn't want, they've used a Barcelona server to simulate Phenom X4 performance.

The server had its PCIe riser card removed and a GeForce 8800GTX put in its place to allow for some graphics intensive tests to be run.
