An AMD K5 should be slower in FPU intensive applications, than an equally clocked Pentium P54C, but also with a Voodoo Rush? The Rush is about 10% slower than the Voodoo Graphics SST-1 3D add-on version, but has a build in Triangle Setup engine, which can help slower CPUs with a weak FPU to achieve a better performance! Let's test this out with some benchmarks to see the real pontential! This is an addition to my last 2019 video on YouTube (see link below)! Now testing out the CPU/FPU performance of the fastest clocked AMD K5 133 MHz (the PR200 model was the fastest one, but never officially released...) and a classic, very popular Intel Pentium-S P54CS, also with 133 Mhz for a comparison!
