Which CPU is better: AMD Phenom II X6 1055T or Intel Xeon E5450?

e5450 = Core 2 Quad q9650.
The 2 extra cores on the 1055t will be a lot more useful.
I know some of these sites claim the 1055t has better single core performance, but the e5450 actually has better single core performance. The IPC of a 45nm Core 2 CPU is around 5-10% higher than a Phenom II. The IPC of a Phenom II CPU matched a 65nm Core 2 processor. Even still, this slight boost in single core performance is not as valuable or useful as having 2 extra cores.
