bytebench



I ran bytebench on an Aspen Systems Durango II 633mhz Alpha/512MB RAM I just
purchased from ebay, and on a Celeron 600mhz/128MB RAM. the Celeron seems
to have proved 2X's the performance of the Alpha! How is this? How
can I determine the cache size of the Alpha? Is it on-die? I can't figure
out what the problem is. Is the benchmark just worthless for a comparison?
Included are the results. TIA
