That was interesting, though not including modern pentiums because "we
cannot get them to run slow enough" kind of invalidates any conclusions.
Shame they didn't include a 2.4Ghz Celeron.

What was most interesting to me though was that while most threaded
applications ran about 80-90% quicker on the dual chips, "Discreet 3D
studio max 8" ran 3.2 times quicker, and "Deep Fritz 10" ran 3.4 times

I suspect what they have in common is that they are not just CPU bound,
but also don't need much more memory than L2 cache gives them.
