Topic title says it all, of course. I always shout: 1!!! But, that not true ofcourse. I could analyze lot's of sources and stuff (or however they count these things) but there's probably someone here who knows the answer. I would guess 0.62.

I tought you didn't care about speed Smile

MIPS - Meaningless Indication of Processor speed.

Offtopic: I'm building a lib with the original opl4 patches,including an easy why to calculate the oct and f-num. Maybe you can use it for RealFun?

I tought you didn't care about speedOfcourse I care about speed. I just think a msx2 at 3.5MHz is fast enough.

Offtopic:
I think your opl4-lib wil be very useful for Realfun. But I should see it first, ofcourse Smile.

*cough* vapourware *cough*uhm, is Realfun under attack here? In that case, could you give me your definition of 'vapourware'?

Hehe, just prove me wrong, please SmileShould I read this as: "No, I can't give you my definition of 'vapourware'?" LOL!

If you insist: vapourware, software that has been announced but will probably never be released in a finished and usable form.

Note that there are some vapourware titles partly on my name, so don't feel bad Tongue

Realfun will be finished, if not I will feel bad Smile

Also because Realfun is needed for other vapourware... (Hehe, the lost world, or the last dragon (to avoid confusion with the Umax product), for instance. Now THAT's vapourware Tongue ).

if you say so Smile

BTW, enter.mp3 sounds cool. Is that realfun or mbwave?

Well, 3.57 Mhz = roughly 3.57 million T-cycles per second.

an instruction is minimal 4 cycles and maximum ... eeh .. 24 or so.
average about 12 cycles per instruction, so 3.57 / 12 = 0.29 Mips.

hmm, that doesn't sound impressive.

It's Realfun, ofcourse. If you think Microsoft's marketing strategy is agressive, you don't know mine. I have forced everybody I know (and has a MoonSound) to use Realfun. Yes, I am bad LOL! I should finish Realfun just for them...
