The next system suite, PCMark Vantage too had the new Intel Core processors comfortably ahead of the top Westmere Core i7 processor. If that's not progress, we don't know what is. Again, the Core i5-2400, despite its more modest 3.1GHz base clock was able to match the higher-clocked Core i7-2600K and Core i5-2500K. It does seem that the lack of HyperThreading and a slightly smaller cache are not affecting its results in this benchmark.
