It was cool to see that THG started to use SETI as a benchmark:).But there isn't much info given about it.
For instance how come the 2 P4 3GHz CPUs are so much faster than the other P4's?.AFAIK HT can't be accounting for it so what gives?.
Anyone any ideas?

Here's a thred I started about it over at AT DC http://forums.anandtech.com/messageview.cfm?catid=39&threadid=1048091&STARTPAGE=1

Team Anandtech 6th in SETI overall Teams

Well, my guess is that Tom used different motherboards for the tests. I'm not sure though. He usually uses the latest hardware in his benches, so it could be that a better motherboard came out between the 2.8 and 3.0 P4s.

Some day I'll be rich and famous for inventing a device that allows you to stab people in the face over the internet.
