so more 5+ghz for a mobile device that will never be reached?
These might actually be able to boost to those clocks on a single core when plugged in. A top end mobile Xeon isn't going in an ultrabook. Mobile workstations are more DTR's than laptops. They allow you to take your system with you, but you're not going to want to lug it around on a hiking trip and expect it to run all day on a battery.

It'll boost to 5.3ghz on a single core workload for maybe 20 seconds. These boost numbers are heavily inflated and unrealistic for a XEON machine which are typically used for tasks that require more than 1 thread, like content creation, multiple virtual machines etc.... Right now, with AMD being so awesome, it's all about marketing with Intel right now. They NEED to advertise some sort of advantage over AMD.
