This is borne out by the fact that the speed difference between the two machines is not a constant ratio. The mac is a RISC machine. The PC is a CISC machine. In some cases the slower processor will do as well as the faster one because of the microcoding for mathematical, as well as other (bitblt, etc) operations. Other factors, such as pipelining and caching (L1, L2, etc) will have an effect as well. As I recall, some of the Macs had FPUs, and others did not. This will also affect the speed.
