Hmmm.  The text was littered with the fluff marketing bits, about how
this is devastating to Opteron and all that.  Sounded quite a bit like
it was written by Intel.

Looking at the LMbench measurements, they may not be a bad thing to use
for hardware characterization.  Not perfect, but as far as micro
benchmarks go, not completely useless either.
