[RC5] K6-2 Benchmarks?

Is anyone running an overclocked Celeron? I am a big advocate of AMD,
and I bought one of the first K6-200's. But I was disappointed at the
delay of the K6-3 w/internal cache. Thus, when it came time for me to
upgrade, the pull of the dark side was too great... I ended up with a
Celeron 300a (128k internal cache). Because of the internal cache, and
its PII heritage core, the 300a are easily overclockable to 450+. Mine
runs at 463.5mhz and about 1.30M keys per second. 
I hope to see the K6-3 and the K7 soon... I would like to be powered by
AMD once again...

		What are the Cyrix 300's getting ? Anyone know?
		My k6-2 gets on about 125kk/s more than my Cyrix200MX
		That's pitiful.
		the Cyrix 300's have to be pretty fast.
