Actually, Turbo Drivers were not tied to the parallel port, because they were able to print to file - the coding was simple enough to make FastSpool support possible ;-)

It would be really interesting to see how fast the Turbo Drivers would be able to print on an IYONIX...the bigger problem is of course that, apart from HP PCL for monochrome lasers, no available Turbo Driver would be able to print on reasonably modern printers.
