Speeds aren't bad for a first release, I remember JIT RedSquirrel was only getting above 30mips well into the development cycle with 1.6GHz machines.

Of course with 2.5GHz it was getting SA speeds of around 130mips, and also RO4 seemed to run a fair bit faster than 3.7, graphics card was very important, and for some reason the Pentium-M's ran much better than AthlonXP's, well Intel seemed better than AMD in general....

How is VirtualRPC doing these days as far as MIPS? Although I'm not sure that's the best benchmark.
