Where do you get these fantastic numbers? Where can I buy a system like
that? Commonly we see regressions with single threaded integer
performance on most newer processor generations.

These hundreds of percent improvement can only come from floating point
performance using specialized instructions. There are only a very limited
number of applications that can make use of it.
