I have a 486DLC/40, and I'm considering putting up 2 or 3 dialup lines on it.
I have a couple of questions about it, first.
It's running at 13.13 bogomips, and I was wondering whether response time
would be fairly interactive. Would it increase if I added a cyrix math
coprocessor? How about another 128k of 15ns cache to give it a total of
256k cache? And 16megs of 70ns RAM?
13.13 BogoMips for a 482DLC/40? - I have a 33MHz board, adn I get
13.21 BogoMips. The difference may be that I have 8 * 1Mb RAM, i.e.
the system is capable of interleaving. I have 128Kb of external
The extra 128Kb cache probably won't give a big difference, but do
make sure that the chipset interleaves (i.e. that you have 2 32bit RAM
banks). However, a little extra RAM never hurts the performance, as long as you are able to interleaving ;-)
