I don't think that the PCI graphics inside the current IYONIX is a problem. I don't think that a slower-than-the-fastest-PC PCIex graphics inside a hypothetical IYONIX II would be a problem.

But I am sure that a doubling in clock speed, much faster RAM access and (for the first time in ARM history, at least as I remember it) a comparatively large L2 cache would give us a large performance boost comparable to the ARM2 -> ARM3, ARM710 -> SA and the SA -> Iyonix upgrade.
