Ordinary DUAL Pentium 400 MHz machine does this...


Calculating CPU speed...done
Testing checksum speed...done
Testing RAM copy...done
Testing I/O port speed...done

CPU Clock = 400 MHz
checksum speed = 685 Mb/s
RAM copy = 1549 Mb/s
I/O port speed = 654 kb/s


This is 685 megaBYTES per second.

checksum speed = 685 Mb/s
