If you are referring to the overall performance being lower than the
actual clock rate would indicate, then yes, a Cyrix 233MHz chip will
*not* be as fast as an Intel 233MHz CPU. Clock rates are only useful
for comparing chips by the same manufacturer within the same family.
Nevertheless, without a GUI running, the 300MHz CPU is to be taken
