Default Re: Intel Core i7 “Nehalem” Review

Supposedly Deneb is about 20% faster clock for clock than Barcelona and they overclock pretty well, too. That will probably have to hold AMD over until 2010.

As for i7, blowing away synthetic benchmarks is all well and good, but they're just not that great for gaming. There's literally no reason to upgrade from any Penryn-based CPU if you've already got one and gaming is your primary task.
