It would have been more interesting if you had compared the test with a A5000, a RiscPC 600 and a 600MHz PC like I did with my tests.

When I recently did my set of benchmarks which included the Iyonix pc there was a lot of people who wanted to know how it compared with their current machines.

Amazing how many RISC OS users are not even using a StrongARM machine!

Of course what we all want to know is why is it only 2.5X faster?

Peter Bonder at Acorn promised us a Phoebe ([link] for some of you youngsters) that would be twice as fast as a RiscPC. And that was with both of those machines using a StrongARM.

What went wrong with the Iyonix?

Unfinished Compiler? :-)
