I believe it, but I also cannot ignore SPEC2000 results
(http://www.spec.org/osg/cpu2000/results/cpu2000.html) since my
programs are similar to some of the SPEC test codes:

CINT2000 CFP2000
base peak base peak
Gigabyte GA-7DX Motherboard, 1.33GHz Athlon 482 539 414 445
Precision WorkStation 530, 1.70 GHz P4 575 593 593 609

(The higher the better. Details are on the spec web site). Moreover,
there are no dual Athlon system available now.
