PPBM5 results puzzling me

I’ve just finished building this system:

– Asus P9X79

– i7-3930K 4.5GHz

– 32GB 1600 G.Skill RipjawsZ

– Asus GTX 660 Ti TOP (2GB)

– Samsung 830 256GB SSD

– 4 Seagate Barracuda 2TB

 

with two of the Barracudas raided as RAID0. The PPBM5 benchmark score is 58, 97, 40, 6 which is not all that bad (version 5.5).

 

But I’m wondering about the MPEG2-DVD score (97) — why is it so high. Is it the RAM speed, that is the limiting factor here?

 

(My current rig scored 149, 371, 304, 224 so I’m not unsatisfied, just wondering)
