What is your VPC emulated speed?

    I'm wondering if there is a speed increase from Mac OS 10.1 to 10.2 in terms of VPC preformance. An estimate on this performance is by finding the emulated processor speed. Heres how you find it...

    In the control panel, open system. The "processor" info in the lower right section.

    If that doesn't work, then try this...
    1. Click 'Start Menu' then choose 'run'
    2. Then type 'dxdiag' and press enter.

    That should work as well.

    My 550 MHz AMD Processor on my laptop is only a 347 MHz according to this...so it seems quite accurate. (My laptop is almost as slow as my 200 MHz desktop)

    So...who has the best emulated speed? Please add your computer info as well, and also the os you're using (9.2.2, 10.1.5, 10.2, VPC 4.0, VPC 5.0.4...etc.)

    Gone but not forgotten.
    Okay, I just ran it on my G3/400 with 512MB, 256 allocated to Win98SE and dxdiag reported a ConnectixCPU P6, MMX, ~400 MHz. Of course, it took several minutes and the system is glacier slow right now so... :D

    I'll test the dual 800 later.
