Questions about SETI benchmarks in THG reviews

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

  1. 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.
