The only thing I could find in the forum directly related to the subject above was posted by you on Jan 2003:
"Most of the tests in PerformanceTest are single threaded. This means that only a single CPU will be used at a time. This is similar to a lot of commonly used applications, which are also single threaded."
Is this still the case? If so I don't understand why my "old" 3.6GHz Pentium D Dual Core (Dell Precision 380) is ~x4 slower on integer math than the benchmark 3.5GHz "QX6800 Intel Core 2 2930 BL6710" with 4 cores.
If (hypothetically) your tests are truly single threaded, all other things being equal, wouldn't the "integer math" (which is what my application needs) rating be directly proportional to clock speed?
