Does MMX benchmark test SSSE3, SSE4.1, or SSE4.2?

I ran the HWinfo32 v372beta benchmark against my Phenom II 955BE, and some of the results baffled me.

955BE outperforms Core 2 Duo E6700 by a large margin in CPU and FPU Benchmarks, but gets nudged in MMX Benchmark test. Here are the scores:
[Benchmark_CPU]
Intel Core 2 Duo E6700=51765
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition=134705
[Benchmark_FPU]
Intel Core 2 Duo E6700=40075
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition=153545
[Benchmark_MMX]
Intel Core 2 Duo E6700=82312
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition=81570

I have run benchmark tests twice to confirm this unexplainable result. I can't think of a good reason to explain except maybe this MMX benchmark test is heavily weighed in on the SSSE3, SSE4.1, or SSE4.2?
