We just did a couple of very simple tests to compare an Iyonix against a RevB Beagle...

1. OS_CRC on the ROM (4MB)... took around 32cs on average on the Iyonix and around 36cs on average on the Beagle.

2. Copy a 6MB file from RAMFS to RAMFS... took around 51cs on the Iyonix and 21cs on average on Beagle.

So there are mixed results. However, I'm sure you'll agree that given the difference in cost and size, it's a very interesting prospect.
