IMHO the StrongARM is already lost. When was it released? 1995?
The first SA110 had 200Mhz (when Pentiums were around 100MHz I think).
A year (IIRC) later DEC produced 233Mhz versions.

Then Intel bought the StrongARM.

What's the fastet StrongARM you get nowadays?
Still SA110@233MHz AFAIK.
Absolutely no progress in terms of speed...

(Well, we still have ARM LTD with their ARM10-Family)
