The only one I found was this comparing Opteron 275's and 280's to Xeon 
5160 (that's the Woodcrest), giving a 28% advantage to the Xeon vs the 280:

This seems to quote numbers from this Anandtech article, which mentions 
that it's a dual-socket setup:

Beat in mind that the Xeon costs twice as much as the 280 (can't speak for 
the platform as a whole), but it's a point of reference nonetheless.

HTH,
Geoff
