[rescue] RPi vs SS20 benchmarks (interesting)

Well, on pure clock speed (think bogoMIPS), the 900 MHz Hz clock of the
Razberry Pi 2 is 15x faster than the 60 MHz SuperSPARC, add to the mix the
amount of work done in a single CISC instruction on the Pi vs the work done in
a single RISC instruction on a SPARC processor and for the Coup d' Grace, the
Pi is a quad-core CPU... the speed up should be a bit higher IMHO.

This of course ignores the 1 Gig of RAM in the Pi 2 compared to the 512 Meg of
RAM in the SS/20 (Max) because that doesn't really factor in to it...
