Documentary on Intel Xeon processor ‘Nehalem Effect’ is nonsense

I rarely write about topics with such vigour, but this latest video from a so-called documentary team is absolute and utter rubbish. There is no evidence whatsoever that the Intel Xeon 5500 processor can create the kind of data centre disruption witnessed in the documentary. In the spirit of openness, here is the video I am referring to:

Here is the text that accompanied the video:

Intel takes great pride in its new ‘Nehalem’ based Xeon Processors. They tout the fact that because of their incredible performance and power efficiency, the ROI benefit effectively makes them ‘Cash Machines’ for IT. See: http://www.tgdaily.com/content/view/44213/135/

But the truth is far darker, someone has to hold them accountable.

See: http://blogs.intel.com/technology/2009/10/intel_proves_nehalem-ep_proces.php and http://blog.internetnews.com/apatrizio/2009/10/nehalem-is-proving-to-be-intel.html for more details.
