It ran slower than dual SM81s for practically everything I used it for (mostly desktop workstation/heavily threaded stuff). Also, contrary to pretty much everything I read on the web, the SM81s ran cooler than either the ROSS (dual 200 or quad) or the older SM61s and below. SUPERSparc was an awesome processor for the day.
