As TechReport have discovered though, there seems to be a potential problem with the CPU-Z screenshot provided.

The CPU-Z shot reveals a clock speed of 2.64GHz, a bus speed of 133MHz, and a core voltage of just 0.856V. The cache readings look a little wonky, since they report 32KB of L2 cache per core, whereas Intel has clearly stated that Nehalem packs 256KB L2 of cache per core.

Nevertheless, the machine apparently managed to hit a CPU score of 16,334 in 3DMark Vantage. VR-Zone comments that the score is “about 45% faster than a similarly clocked [45nm Core 2 Quad].” 3DMark Vantage’s CPU tests cover physics and artificial intelligence simulations, and a look at Futuremark’s results database indeed suggests 2.66GHz Core 2 Quad Q9450 CPUs typically score around 11,000 points in the Vantage CPU test.
