Question Tom's hardware shows a 2.4ghz+GeForce3 is as fast as 3.06ghz+GeForce4 4600?!?

I need some help figuring out what's up with some of the benchmarks shown on separate articles from Tom's Hardware. I'm looking to buy a new machine, and so I was interested in looking at some performance figures on RDRAM motherboards. When I noticed a large inconsistencies across different types of articles @Tom's.

May 1, 2002 - Here we have a Pentium 4 2.4ghz/133Mhz w/ PC1066 533Mhz running Quake at 640x480, the Framerate is at: 381.6fps

September 9, 2002 - Pentium 4 3.06ghz/133Mhz w/ PC1066 533Mhz running also Quake at 640x480. The Framerate? 384.6fps
http://www6.tomshardware.com/cpu/02q...4_3600-06.html

The benchmark setups are identical, except that the Pentium4 3.06ghz benchmark is runned on WindowsXP, while the 2.4ghz is on Windows2000

So how in the freaking world can a
Pentium4 3.06ghz + GeForce 4 4600 be running as slow as a Pentium4 2.4ghz + GeForce 3 Ti500 ?!?
