The BeBox (2x PPC 603 at 66MHz) or the SGI Indy (R5000 at 150MHz)?

Yeah but the current speed should be more or less the same as when they work, since the CPU is running and the CPU is what takes the most time to emulate.

Luigi30, you always were ignorant and totally incapable of logic. Allow me to put in some gas and jumpstart your brain into gear:

66*2 = 132
150*1 = 150

Plus the PPC emulation is considerably faster than the MIPS emulation. Draw your own conclusion, if you're capable.

Actually comparing MHz across CPU families, even emulated ones, is doomed to fail. You should know better than that, MG.

Don't you have a group home for unloved second-rate video game characters to go back to, Luigi?
