I've been reminded of the numbers and I misquoted (senility something or
other . I forget). The ARM2 at 8MHz scored 87% Dorado, the ARM3 at 12MHz scored
125%. ARM2 had no cache at all, ARM3 had 4kb combined instruction/data cache.
So the comparison would be
(600/8) * 87 -> 65~ Dorado or ~three times what I'm getting.
XScale at 600MHz has 16kb (?) each of instruction and data caches and a rather
more modern memory interface than the ARM2.
