Good question.  I have no idea what the difference is between a K6/233
and a PII/300.

I can give you some hard number for Alpha, but not for a 767 mhz Alpha.

With my program, running an Enorex 500 mhz Alpha (1mb cache), it appears
that the Alpha is 1.5x faster than my P6/200.  This is based upon a run
of the LCTI test at 210 seconds per position (98 minutes total).

Running on a Polywell 533 mhz Alpha (2mb cache), mine goes 1.75x faster
than my P6/200, based upon the same test.

I have heard that a K6/233 is faster than a P6/200.
