em2ac: one of the Eidos guys did an article in RISC User comparing the performance of the just-released S/ARM chip with its Pentium and PowerPC contemporaries - I think it was '96 but my back numbers are all in the attic covered with dust. They were all clocked around 200Mhz: but Dhrystone-wise the S/A kicked ass bigtime. Happy days!

Current Apples top out around 1.5Ghz but can do more than 1 instruction per clock cycle I think, unlike ARMs.
