Whilst I agree that you probably would see a difference, my whole purpose was to demonstrate the effects on current hardware, and I wouldn't consider an Arm 700 RPC as 'current'. Also whilst this is attempting to look at 'real-world' values, it's not a 100% accurate performance indicator for all machines in all circumstances.

Whilst I think the Unipod is excellent value for money, a second-hand SA card would add more to your machine for that money, so my advice to ARM 700 RPC users is simple: use the money on a SA first, and if you get the money again, come back for the Unipod if it suits your needs. If they desperately need, eg, USB or an NIC, then the choice of a Unipod would be obvious as it definitely offers the best value-for-money, but in those cases speed comparisons would be a moot point.
