    This is a totally crap benchmark... From the short run time I'm convinced all that it really benches is memory bandwidth, and MAYBE a quick floating point test. I introduced this to the XS forums and they all blasted the Mac's off the top page in about 5 minutes with their C2D's, good stuff :D.
