That's a good question. From looking at the SPEC2000fp details, it
seems that the board used to run the benchmark was one that they're
selling to OEMs, so I suspect it was throttled.
Like most people, I really don't care about the details as long as I'm
not misled. If throttling has a significant impact on performance,
then presumably people will offer systems for sale with bigger
heatsinks and the throttling disabled.
