    SubjectBogoMIPS revisitied...MMX
    Date
    Ok, I wouldn't ask this question if I didn't think that there was
    more going on here.

    I have a P100 Toshiba laptop. It's your average P100 mobile 2.9v
    processor. I recently purchased a P233MMX as well.

    The thing that baffles me is this:

    I know that the bogomips loop is a >small< and tight loop of 3 or
    4 instructions. Why is it that my P100 spits out something like
    39.19 BogoMIPS and my P233MMX spits out 466.15 bogomips? I know
    that the Pentium had some issue with this, being that a standard
    486 executed *that* particular loop faster.

    So, why such the HUGE difference?
