The memory performance of the 65-nm G steppings seems to be clearly behind the performance seen with the 90-nm Windsor cores. The synthetic benchmarks reveal low-level performance differences, but they usually aren't very relevant in real-life applications. Hence, this difference explains why the 65-nm versions are marginally behind their 90-nm siblings when it comes to computing performance.
