Huh, surprised that the 486 didn't score better with the flash based memory. Interesting  comparison.

Agreed. I had always heard people suggest that, "the 486/100 is as fast as or faster than comparable Pentium machines". However, a lot of this test script is about directly editing and there isn't a lot of disk access beyond the initial insert. Both machines have more than enough RAM to prevent paging.

Well I can agree to that statement, mostly. While in college my roommate bought a new Pentium 60 MHz PC and I bought a new 486DX4 100 MHz PC. There were tasks that mine seemed faster and some optimized for the Pentium that his was faster with. We both had 16 mb of ram and 540 mb hard drives. LOL, I paid $1,500 for that with a 15" CRT screen.
