The K7 (And K6 as well) are not as fast at RC5 as the intels are... a
Celeron (without cache) overclocke to 400mhz does 1.15 Mkeys, which AFAIK
could outrun any K6 on the market and probably most K7's running at normal
speed... (No, price is not the issue here and i am well aware that my
celeron 266 at 400 is cheap and overclocked, but that still doesn't change
the fact that my celeron at 400mhz beats a K6/7 running much faster)
