The guy that took the pics stuck a Pikachu doll next to the processor, ostensibly to prove that the pics weren't fake. How this establishes authenticity eludes me ("Dude, Pikachu would NEVER pose next to a fake Willamette!"), but there it is. At the moment, performance is all over the map (it is a pre-release CPU after all) with the memory benchmarks off the scale while integer and floating point.... need more work. Anyway, they have a complete Sandra benchmark run, so go check it out.
