Our CPU test procedure is evidently intended to evaluate performance of modern x86(-64) CPUs and to draw certain conclusions from the obtained results. It is based on the principle that any result obtained in a test is equipollent to any other result. There are no weight numbers — all results, no matter how many, are equipollent. Ideally, test conditions should be absolutely identical. If it's not the case, they must be as identical as possible. It's up to our testlab to find out how possible it really is and what variant is maximum close to the ideal case.
