740QM
1.7GHz
6mb l3 cache
2.5GT/s
Dual Channel
Bus Core ratio 13


i7 950
3.06GHz (stock)
8mb l3 cache
4.8GT/s
Triple Channel
Bus Core Ratio 23

Yea its not really all that surprising really... Obviously the 740QM can't do bigadv so smp only. 4K-4500 PPD really isnt that bad for it.

I am not working bigadv with the 955,straight -smp. That i7 has a core/thread advantage but is more than a full GHz slower.In this case hyperthreading cannot make up for the lower clock.I cannot see why the server would not send you a -bigadv, you meet the core/thread count on that 1.7GHz i7,deadline,well that is a different story.
