Common Paul, pleaaaassseee.....

The 7500FE is slow because it uses an ARM7 processor core not because it's system on a chip (the SA-1100 is a system on a chip and it seems plenty fast - as it has a SA core).

Likewise the IOP321 is fast because it has an xScale core (the fact it has a fast memory controller, PCI interface logic and other pieces integrated in does not affect this).

By providing support for 200MHz DDR RAM (rather than 100 or 133 SDRAM) the IOP321 as used in the Iyonix IS faster than any putative SA based system Evolution might use.

Finally the Iyonix *exists* and that in my opinion is the real clincher.

Kind regards
