    In tests performed by ALB42, the 50 MHz 68882 is between 1.8 and 17 times as fast as Vampire SoftFPU:

    Worthwhile correction, 1.7-17 times, eh?
    Missed that and went by a post on YouTube.
    I stand corrected.

    Maybe they ought to talk to Thomas and see if he has any of those relabeled '133FE' cpus left (although those didn't have an fpu did they, or was it just the MMU missing?). ;-)

    Ah well, whenever their 'charismatic' leader gets around to it (a real fpu).
