It seems that 16 cores AMD Opteron 8360 SE @2.5 Ghz have a better overall score than 16 cores Intel X7350 @3.0 Ghz (both on DELL Platform R900 and R905).

The VMark Results are here.

As an aside note, in this post there are interesting considerations about the scalability in term of performance of Web servers.
