> 600MHz down to 40MHz is a tad much. ;-)

Well, I'm certainly not satisfied with it yet :)

Though, when you consider that a 15:1 ratio means that I'm reading the instruction, working out what needs to be done and actually doing it in 15 cycles for each (single cycle) instruction of the 26-bit code it doesn't sound too bad!

Not dissing VA for their efforts (the x86 is a very awkward platform to host on), but don't they get 40-50MHz performance from a /1GHz/ Pentium?

And Aemulor still has no JIT to speak of remember - coz I'm lazy and haven't got round to it ;-)
