I think Julian has a point about pointless benchmarks, the Iyonix comes out on top of a RiscPC on all tasks in the table above, but like he said, in some real world tasks the RiscPC is faster (although I expect there is a pretty good reason for this). I agree with Mr Chocky about getting some benchmarks for the Omega in the open, maybe just run BatchFSI on a load of JPEGs or something. On the benchmark point, my brother's 550MHz G4 laptop kills my 200MHz RiscPC in all tests we have run, but for simply viewing a JPEG, the RiscPC can be faster or the same. So really I think the only benchmark worth anything is the actual task you're running.

  • How to convince more websites to work with the RISC OS Firefox port
