 Replying to [comment:31 bbjimmy]:
 > Although the newer browser scores higher on most tests, it is the
 rendering that looks to be the problem. The older version renders much
 faster. By the way, the page loads in about 15 seconds on r1a3, and about
 5 minutes on r1a4-44580

 I think you can rule out the "Render" test there - on my 64bit Windows 7
 machine, with a dual-core AthlonX2, running Chrome, the "Render" spits out
 4.49 using that same test (while the overall score is 379.68). Webkit (and
 thus Chrome), are known to have pretty bad rendering time, since there's
 no hardware acceleration. Why it was that fast before, I couldn't say.

 If you're of the opinion that it's not network related, you should
 probably test out some of the common suites such as Sunspider, Kraken, V8
 Bench, etc.


 I suspect these all test CPU-bound algorithms, however...

 Are you not experiencing high CPU when it's slow? If not, then I'm
 guessing it's some sort of I/O issue - either network, or disk - or a
 locking problem.
