I don't know the differences either, I would assume speed. The one 
thing I do know is that the turbo version creates too much heat for 
most systems, and IIRC Sun made a special sbus fan card that mounted in 
the lower slots on an SS10 (or SS20?) to keep the turbo ZX cool. You 
might not want to run that card in a SS600.
