The experience of a friend of mine is the other way around a dual 2 Ghz
XEON system could not handle the same number of CS servers that where on an
AMD Athlon MP 1900+ system ! After the switch (MP<>XEON) people (clan
servers) where complaining about extreme lag, when the switch was undone
everything was fine (again) !
