Well, I am running a 6x86-150. This chip has a clock of 120mhz (the 166
runs at 133 I think). Anyway, with recent development 386 kernels it had
a bogomips of 120, for what that is worth, with the 486 bogomips a touch
more conservative. I am afraid I don't have any thing terribly recent to
compare to, it replaces a 386-40. I could run some benchma^h^h^h^h^h^h^h
damn lies on it and see how it really behaves if anybody would pass me
pointers to something good.
