More P6 Benchmarks

We have just got a Dell OptiPlex GXpro 2xP6-200, running NT 3.51, 64MB
RAM, for evaluation. So here are some MATLAB (4.2.b) benchmarks.

The machine had a fresh installation of NT, graphics is 16bit, ~1100x800
(I think) on a #9. MATLAB running in seperate workspaces, best of two
runs:

BENCHMARK ______NUMBER OF MATLAB INSTANCES_______
__ONE__ __TWO__ _THREE_

Loop 1.2-1.3 1.2-1.3 1.6-5.1
LU 1.5 1.5-1.7 1.6-2.1
Sparse 1.5-1.6 1.6-1.8 1.5-2.4
3D Graphics 3.1 3.4-3.8 5.0-6.0
2D Graphics 5.1 4.5-5.0 6.3-7.2

The instances of MATLAB where run concurrently.

BTW, though NT roughtly halves the performance of MATLAB benchmarks when
compared to Win3.1, this is not the complete story: We u/g a 486/33 to
NT (not a machine I would consider fast enough really), and it was used
for MATLAB batch run overnight. The results (file creation time stamp)
where more in line with (a little under) a 486/66 Win3.1, whereas it
*had* been about half the speed previously. This is probably due to
having to deal with lots of file accesses -- NT disk casheing is much
better than Win16. [BTW2] The above 2xP6 machine was ~10 times as fast
as 486/66+Win16.

Anybody got MATLAB benchmarks for a machine running NT4??
