[parsec-users] sub-linear scaling

I find several PARSEC benchmarks to scale sub-linearly on quadcore 
machines (AMD Quadcore Phenoms and Intel Quadcore Q6600) using native 
input sets.
I'm running with several GBs of DDR2-800 RAM off the local hard drive. I 
tried over NFS but that only gave worse results.

Has anyone else encountered this or found all benchmarks scale at least 
linearly to four threads? I noticed the technical report did not use 
native inputs. Are there any other sources that have?
