forgot the link,

Now that I have been using an i7 940 & also a 920 for a couple of weeks, I’ve backed off the OC a few %, down to 3.6Ghz for the 940 & 3.3Ghz for the 920, even though they seemed to be perfectly ok doing a 24h test utilising 12 gb ram each, with just a couple of extra fans for piece of mind.

For everything other than rendering the 940 is quicker than my E5450 V8. Eg, for an animation preview it can create 1000 frames as against 630 for the E5450 & according to WTM its using 18% CPU as compared to 16% CPU usage.

Probably all the new retail 55xx will be snapped up by Apple like the 54xx were, but based on the i7 its going to be a very nice step in number crunching.
