The HP bobcats with the HP MMU are also the more expandable and versatile
boxes, and the ones with the best DMA setup.  Actually a really nice DMA

The boxes without the HP MMU lack the expansion and I/O capability,
but do have a motorola MMU.   Some of the slower CPU HP MMU boxes are
a bit faster than the faster CPU ones because the HP MMU and DMA evens
out the performance.   If one is doing a lot of I/O, it kicked butt.
If one just does CPU intensive things and don't use the disk or I/O,
the faster CPU wins.
