Simo: "Can anyone run this on an Omega? I'd be interested in the memory timings compared to the Iyonix"

According to RISCOSmark, it would seem that the Omega *outperforms* the Iyonix in six of the ten tests listed:

Memory on Iyonix = 201 Memory on Omega = 240

Icon plotting on Iyonix = 32 Icon plotting on Omega = 130

Draw fill on Iyonix = 75 Draw fill on Omega = 154

At least the Iyonix wins in the processor department, 261 vs 151 -- if it had lost that category too it *would* have been embarrassing :blush:

The Iyonix is also *exceptionally* good at Rectangle Copy: 5786 vs 149!

PS It'll be interesting to see how an Omega with graphics acceleration and XScale compares ;-)
