The Cyrix and AMD 586 processors are comparable to the 486 but the
Cyrix/IBM 686 is faster then a Pentium. I've compared my IBM (Cyrix) 686
running at 133mhz directly to an Intel 166mhz Pentium and except for those
program that are optimized specifically for the Pentium arcitecture or make
heavy use of the FPU (few programs do) it will outperform the Intel 166mhz
Pentium.
