	       ...the MacIvory model II is 75% faster on the Gabriel
      benchmarks than the MacIvory model I.

That's interesting -- I'd thought that the limitation was the speed of
access to memory (both bus bandwidth and disk bandwidth).  Did they
improve the paging performance, or was the old chip just a dog?
