        I'm afraid you're wrong there....the CC II was clocked at
33mhz and had a true 32 bit data path while the CC was based on a 16
bit data path, the same as the LC series, and was clocked at 16 mhz.
All were based on the 68030. The 16bit data path is what crippled
the CC so badly, not the 16mhz clock. It's said that it only had
roughly 60-70 % of the speed of the SE/30.
