Why do you think the 333MHz P-II should be much faster than that?
I just checked
and it appears to me that the Octane has 20.3 SPECfp95, versus 9.25 of
the P-II. So using the Intel compiler (which I heard is optimized for
SPEC and won't necessarily give good real-world performance) you could
get at most 46% of the SGI's performance.
Has anybody tried the 21264 Alpha workstations for CNS (they are rated
at 52.2 SPECfp95)?
