I have a Mac Pro 3,1 running at 3.0 ghz which isn't that much slower than the 3.2 2008 model. Why is my geekbench score so much lower than most of the 3.0 mac pros and 3.2 mac pros? Here are my specs:

Model Name: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro3,1
Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon

I am also using the 64 bit version of Snow Leopard, and 32 bit kernel. In addition, I have a 4870 Radeon card.
