For most of our codes an R10K @ 200Mhz, performed better than a USII @
300Mhz with twice the cache as the R10K. I'd be interested in finding
out where an US II at the same clock speed performs better than an R10K
(although to be fair an US II should be compared with an R12K, even
though it is pretty much the same thing as an R10K). the out-of-orderness
of the R10K should make it substantially more efficient than the Sparc at
comparable clock speeds.
