The BogoMIPS figure I gave, actually
does this machine a huge injustice,
especially if yer doing any floating point.
I'll look into getting SPECint_2000
and SPECfp_2000 for it. The fp is
going to be mental!
just to confirm it's has 12 1GHz CPUs.
By the way alpha has it's own equivalent
to mmx instructions called MVI (Motion
