another interesting thing:

I benchmarked these two systems:

1: AMD Athlon XP 2600+ "Barton" overclocked to 2100MHz with Nvidia Nforce2 chipset

and

2: AMD Athlon XP 2600+ "Barton" overclocked to 2130MHz with VIA KT600 chipset

Both systems were using the same memory (Kingston DDR333 CL2.5)

System 1 showed an iteration time of roughly 150ms.
System 2 showed an iteration time of roughly 165ms.

there was a 15ms difference!!!

Note that system2 was overclocked 30mhz more than system1.

I suspect that the reason is the different chipset (Nvidia nForce2 vs. VIA KT600). What do you think?
