Question Quadrant Score - Why is 1st test score always lower?

I know, I know..."quadrant scores don't really mean anything" but I am just curious what changes between the first test and subsequent tests.

For example, with Virtuous, my first score would be slower than the Moto Droid X 2.2+, and every time I re-ran a Quadrant score in the same session, I would be on the very top tier (faster than the Nexus One 2.2+).

Same story for CM7 nightlies. First run is 1228, the 2nd run is 1366 and the 3rd run is 1356, again...after the first test I am on the very top tier.

Incidentally, not overclocking.

I'de say it has something to do with keeping its processes in memory or something so that the second time it ran it, it would do everything faster. But this is just a guess!

Either keeping a lot of the data/processing in memory like the above poster suggests or maybe the processor is revved up more from the start of the test.

But yeah those scores don't have a lot of value to them.
