We begin with a few synthetic memory performance tests because the memory subsystem's performance affects our understanding of what's going on in the rest of the benchmarks.
The Xeon systems are at a distinct disadvantage due to their dual-channel DDR333 memory, but that's about as fast as it gets for Xeons currently. Some Xeon motherboards offer dual-channel DDR2 400, but that's not likely much faster than DDR memory at 333MHz. The Pentium XE 840 achieves much higher throughput thanks to its dual channels of low-latency DDR533 memory.
