Thing is intel are aiming these things clearly in places where *I/O performance matters* (keeping x8 SATA drives fed and watered is going to require some umph). That being the case these chips are not going to be slouches

All in all good news, hopefully Castle (given their experience with the related IOP321) will be in a position to produce a machine based on one of these CPU's. The performance should be somewhat better than the simple arithmetic of dividing the new CPU clock rate by the old (the faster memory interface and the large L2 cache should see to that).
