OK, I've seen the JIT'ed RedSquirrel and I can say that on an Athlon 1.6GHz vs my SA287, RS is faster with memory and FP (and disk I guess) but slower with integer, although in use it seems slower.

I guess a Kinetic may even it out a bit with it's faster memory. Anyway the issue is that this will be faster than a R7500 portable.

Dyrstones/sec: RS: 110866, SARPC: 482205

kWhetsones/sec (FP) RS: 7862, SARPC: 3330

Cache memory read (Mb/sec): RS: 3657, SARPC: 965

I don't think the Alpha will do much better, if at all, after all it's a Mobile Celery. My Duron 750 was slower than my PIII/500....
