I see.  All the ad hominem attacks in the world aren't going to change
my mind, or anyone elses for that matter.  Perhaps you'd like to start
over and explain where I went wrong instead of implying that I know

I was addressing your statement that a P3 and a Octane have a memory
subsystem that is on par with each other.  Nothing more, nothing less.

As far as raw computational prowess, My Octane still stomps the P3 800
behind me for a number of tasks.  That's real performance, not
benchmarks or theoretical speed.
