Re: bogomips/speed ratio and Power PC chip
There would appear to be something quite astray here...
If you look at the bogomip howto
you will notice that the bogomip relationship with processors is in step,
ie faster processors = more bogomips ;)
The howto lists a g4/999 @ 1992 bogomips
Yet within this thread I have not seen anyone reporting anything
approaching this sort of rating.
