AGA only :(

If RT would compile CPU specific executables, view might run a lot faster , especially on a 060 as it has a different architecture than the other 68K processors. Modern C-Compilers can optimize (pipeline !) quite good. Many 68060-optimized programs run 1.5 to 2.0 times faster on a 060 than a 020 version on the same cpu.

I use View1.2. Jean
