For Interger performance it's slightly better than a Pentium II
350Mhz, and for Floating Point, it's somewhere around a Pentium III
500-550Mhz. The other thing to remember is that the PA-RISC chip is
64-bit. I'm guessing the K570 also weighs a lot more than any normal
Pentium II or Pentium III system :^)
