Interesting, does the origonal CIII have a TSC? would that affect the
timings Alan got?

The following table may be of use to people:

(All these S370)
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
core size name code Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
samuel 0.18m Via Cyrix III(C5) (128K L1 0K L2 cache). FPU
doesn't run @ full clock speed.
samuel II 0.15m Via C3 (C5B) 667MHz CIII in Dabs are
C3's (128K L1, 64K L2 cache), (MMX/3D now!), FPU @ full clock speed.
mathew 0.15m Via C3 (C5B) mobile samuel II with
integrated north bridge & 2D/3D graphics. (1.6v)
ezra 0.13m Via C3 (C5C) Debut @ 850MHz rising to
1GHz quickly (1.35v)
nehemiah 0.13m Via C4 (C5X) Debut @ 1.2GHz (128K L1,
256K L2 cache) (SSE)
esther 0.10m Via C4 (C5Y) ?
