Thanks for the info! I'm running View on 16-bit screen on A4000 with 68040
at 40Mhz and Cybervision3D(old S3VirgeDX chip with 4Megs) and the speed is
comparable to View on Windows based PC box at approx. 66-90Mhz. So I was
just speculating that speed of View on AmigaOS(under Amithlon) running let's
say on PC at 1.5-2GHz should be comparable with the Win version on the same
