My U30/300 massively outperforms either of my U5s. 

I just upgraded my Octane to 300mhz.  But, I haven't set it against any
of the other machines yet.

Subjectively, I would say that a U30/300 seemed about equal in computer
power to a Octane/250, but the Octane/300 seems much faster than the 250
now.  One of these evenings, I will actually do some application
comparisons on them though (iverilog on both, gcc rebuild on both, etc).
