I did, and I found *nothing* useful.  Let me rephrase:

  the basic AMD K6/233 has a performance factor of 1.0 in this
discussion.  The PII/300 is "ok" by your definition, yet it is faster
than the K6.  Perhaps 20%.  But that is "ok".

Now what I want you to say is that the above represents your thought
before I give you a little simple math that will show that the 500mhz
alphas are in the same ballpark with the PII/300.

I want an *exact* multiplier that you find acceptable.  IE 1.2X is OK.
You haven't done that.  You only say PII is ok, alpha is not.  I want a
number to work with...  simple, really...
