Or more to the point, "We claim it feels like X MHz".
I mentioned we had a Cyrix box .... first it had a, um .... 5x86?
processor that claimed PR233 but actually ran at 166MHz, and performed
and felt like a 486 running maybe 133MHz. Then we upgraded it to a
Cyrix MII that was rated PR300 but actually ran at 233MHz, and, oddly
enough, performed and "felt" about like a Pentium or AMD K6 running, oh,
200MHz or so.
