   Hmm, near-identical FP performance.  I seem to recall someone 
mentioning that the big difference between the R10K and the R12K was a 
set of bug fixes to the caching systems which dramatically increase hit 
rates.  Does anyone else remember that?

   We should find some R-series family information to see what the 
differences really are.
