Intel SpeedStep Technology: Disabled

General Notes

All benchmarks compiled in 64-bit mode except 437.leslie3d,
450.soplex, 470.lbm and 482.sphinx3, for peak, are
compiled in 32-bit mode
The NEC Express5800/120Rh-1(Intel Xeon Processor E5420),
the NEC Express5800/120Rj-2(Intel Xeon Processor E5420),
the Bull NovaScale R440 E1 (Intel Xeon E5420,2.50GHz) and
the Bull NovaScale R460 E1 (Intel Xeon E5420,2.50GHz) models are electronically equivalent.
The results have been measured on a NEC Express5800/120Rj-2(Intel Xeon Processor E5420) model.
