That's plausible -- but a bit surprising to me given benchmark results 
for my machine vs. some of the reference systems:

         2p 2.4 GHz Opteron 250 (Sun Solaris 10):            1.45
mine -> 3.2 GHz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition (Windows XP Pro): 1.42
         2p 2.5 GHz G5 Apple Mac OS 10.41):                  1.15

I guess raw processor speed really makes a difference with these benchmarks.
