" From: john <jferg977 at aol.com>
" Back to the SS 10 CPU question.  Given that multi processors may not do 
" much more than a single would running 4.1.4, there is still the issue of 
" pep. We replaced sun processors with Ross on the SS2's in 1991 IIRC. I 
" may be completely confused here but it seemed like one conversion 
" doubled performance.

that would be the weitek powerup, a more complete hardware
implememntation of the sparcv7 arch than the ss2's cpu, which weitek
also made for sun.  it was billed as 'equal to a ss10', but probably
only the the initial 10/20 or maybe 10/30.

my first sun box was a ss2/weitek with memory board, 2 4G hds, and
4.1.4, and i felt i had the world.
