i didnt see the dates above earlier but i still stand with my opinion that you should compare cpu's with the same timeline
I disagree with your results. You didnt factor in that the xeon e5405 was designed in the fourth quarter of 2007 and the i7 was designed in the third quarter of 2012. The xeon e5405 for how old it is almost outbeated the i7. Thats pretty damn impressive. You put the xeon e5405 against a i7 thats not exactly playing fair either. heres the links for my research for the xeon http://ark.intel.com/products/33079/Intel-Xeon-Processor-E5405-12M-Cache-2_00-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB and the i7 http://ark.intel.com/products/71670/Intel-Core-i7-3632QM-Processor-6M-Cache-up-to-3_20-GHz-BGA
