Dear CPU Scorekeeper

I have an AMD K6-233 and I have just bought a Cyrix MII-266 for 20!

Will it be faster than my AMD K6 (i.e. floating point etc...)?

See the questionCPU Scorekeeper Responds

For a direct comparison between the AMD K6-233 and the Cyrix MII(MX)-266 (or any other PC CPU's), go straight to our CPU Comparator. You will see that, in general, the performance of your current K6 and the Cyrix are almost identical!

This is mainly because the MX-266 runs at a weird speed of 208MHz (albeit on a 83MHz bus), while the K6 actually runs at 233MHz. Cyrix' PR266 title is more intended to invite comparison with Intel's 266MHz Pentium MMX chip, which both the MX-266 and the K6-233 outpace.
