SPECviewperf, Cachemem and ScienceMark

The scores are VERY close on this SPEC test, showing us that these professional programs are much more dependent on the other components (including memory subsystem and video card) than they are on pure frequency.
The memory results here are very similar to the SiSoft results.
The ScienceMark test, though it uses a lot of memory bandwidth, can take advantage of every ounce of processor frequency on the Athlon XP 2200+ processor.
