Sounds very useful! What processor(s) is inside that then?
I can send you a copy of SMC32 to play with if you like - mail me. Needs
Windows to run I'm afraid. It was coded up and optimised in the far-off
days of the Pentium MMX, so it is a bit old and creaky; a high level
language parallelizing over a handful of cores with a decent algorithm
would certainly beat it, however for the time being it's still a useful
benchmark to aim at.
