    SubjectCyrix M2
    I remember a big discussion about MMX that happened not
    too long ago. The conclusion was that the penalty to switch
    between FP & MMX was too great for a true multitasking OS.

    So now Cyrix has their new M2 (yet to be seen) that has L1 cache
    access as fast as the registers as well as L1 cache locking and
    a few other neat features. Does this have the same performance
    hit for switching as the Pentium or is it faster?

    Just wondering . . .
