Guess that depends on what you are doing with it...

The LX is 50Mhz while the IPX is 40MHz... but...

Don't try to run WABI on it... the IPX will do much
better.... the Classic and LX suffered from lack of
cache (it was way to small).

It is quite possible that an IPX with a Weitek PowerUp
might even be faster all around than an LX.
