... as a fast CPU!

An A4000/040 with A3640 and an Ariadne ethernet board will reach the
double performance of an A3000/25 but only half of an A4000 with a
WarpEngine 040/40.

No, NFS should actually be faster (AmiTCP/IP 4.2 FTP: 250KB/sec,
NFS: 400KB/sec). NetBSD-Amiga's NFS client is somehow broken because
you get much better performance if you use your Amiga as NFS server.
