If you're talking about Edwin Lim's post, you'll note that it was talking
about Cyrix's 5x86 chips; (equivalent to souped-up 486 class Intel chips)...
*NOT* the Cyrix 6x86 class which outperform the fastest Pentium 166Mhz

When someone says "the features of their chips" I'm assuming it's the neat
innovative features (read: I have no idea what they are) of the 6x86 that
Cyrix has innovated, not the older, standard 486-like features of the 5x86
class of chips...
