I've never heard that.  R10ks running at 195mhz, in my experience,
typically could be called a little sluggish.  It seems that when they
can let loose and just chugg at a problem they are blazing fast, but
when they have to be interactive they suffer.  My octane can sit down
and chugg through data very nicely, whether it is IO heavy or CPU heavy,
but it isn't as responsive in Mozilla as my P2 machine was.  Oh well.
One of these days I'll get it upgraded to a R12k.

Just remeber, don't expect to do real work with the AV module on a
machine with any of the R5ks.
