Even with the same 233 StrongARM Phoebe was much quicker than a Kinetic overall, as there was no use of slow memory, no DMA limitations (as with Kinetic), and no I/O bottle necks to the graphics system (as with ViewFinder). It could play a dozen Replay movies from disc simultaneously.

A machine based on a 600MHz XScale with an accelerated graphics card and UDMA100 is substantially faster, so the Iyonix would still have been the machine to replace it, but we wouldn't have lost thousands of users who thought the end of Phoebe was the end of RISC OS hardware.
