And there is no way that an 8 core BD is @ 95W (which SB is at). Most likely 130W. So it can not be comparing at the same TDP. Now an i7 950 is at 130W, so that is more likely.
Why couldn't it be 95W? There are 95W client parts today.
There will be a 35W TDP 8-core server part and there will be a <95W TDP 16-core server part as well.
