I read the note someone else posted about having a Cyrix 6x86 P166+ not perform near as well as a real Pentium. I'm having a hard time understand what optimizations could affect so much of a difference the real Pentium and the Cyrix. I believe I'm not alone in the desire to purchase (and hence support) a non-Intel CPU. What would it take to look into an optimized client for the Cyrix 6x86 line of CPUs? I have some knowledge of assembly for x86s from college several years ago and would like to help som
eone come up with a better client for us non-Intel owners.
