Unfortunately, due to autopar, Nehalem (and SPARC64) SpecInt2k6 scores have very remote relationship to single-threaded performance.
SpecInt as a measure of single-threaded performance is now defunct and we should look for something else.
Now what's the chance that we'll find the same "something else" for both Nehalem and POWER7? I'd say, close to zero.
