performance today is still not too good, I doubted the results. On
pure benchmarks my system hits what IBM says it should right on the
nose or close enough not to matter. But when it comes to running
actual applications the thing is much slower than expected, usually
slower feeling than a SparcStation and in compiles it's often slower
than our microVAX.
I'd like to know what kind of tuning they did to get their numbers so
I could do it to my machine!
