Hello mrpiii-ga The most comprehensive processor performance table I sourced, dated back around 1986 to perhaps the first half of 2002, is listed below: 'Compilation of ratings' based on the bogoMIPS rating. INTEL: from 386sx to Pentium 4 1700 MHz CYRIX: from 5x86/100 to 6x86M/266 AMD: from K5/75 to Athlon XP/1600 CENTAUR: from C6/200 to VIA III/700 ALPHA: from 21064/150 Jensen to 21264DP/833 Tsunami MOTOROLA: from 68030/14.7 to 68060/66 SPARC: from Sparc sun4c to Sparc Ultra II/450 POWERPC: from PowerPC 601 to PowerPC G4/500 Fokus.gmd.de http://www.fokus.gmd.de/linux/HOWTO/mini/html_single/BogoMips.html#s3 (Please allow time for the page to download.. large page) 'What are BogoMips'? - explains the benchmark.

If you need any clarification of the answer, just ask. Kind regards lot-ga
