arawnsley>"Artworks 2, the suposedly killer app for Iynoix was timed (by the usergroup) to be 20% slower on Iyonix when loading the standard example files (eg. the Smarties excample)"

That could very well be the case and Andrew I have no reason to doubt that assertion. But it is one single application and not everyone will inevitably agree on what constitutes a *killer app*. It simply highlights that an emulator may have advantages (speed wise) over an ARM native machine, and of course the contrary will also be true in other areas.

If PC speeds keep increasing then (at some point) VARPC may well equal Iyonix (I don't think Castle would/should wait around that long though !).

Hope you get well soon.
