Linux Benchmarks Makes No Sense

I created two computers with identical hardware, and run the benchmark programs in both starting at the same exact time.

What makes no sense is that the computer that has the lower average index (121) finished the race a good 30 minutes ahead of the computer wich showed the higher avg index (167). The only difference here were the operating systems, which I am not naming yet because it may have commercial implications, and frankly I need to understand the results before jumping to conclusions. Maybe lower index means better system? That would be absurd.

Anybody has any idea about what is happenning?

CHI::Benchmarks - Benchmarks of CHI and non-CHI drivers VERSION
version 0.54 DESCRIPTION
These benchmarks were created by running etc/bench/ -d . -t 10 -x for CHI 0.42, on OS X v10.6.6, 2.2 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, Perl 5.12.2. For each cache, does repeated gets and sets of a data structure for at least 10 seconds and measures the wallclock time per operation. These numbers should just be used as a rough guideline! Actual results will vary widely depending on system, get/set pattern, actual values being set, the proper tuning of memcached/mysql, etc. For best results run the benchmark script (available in this distribution) on your own system.
