Additionally, you might want to try a similar test in C or C++. Note that
this could be a side-effect of the granularity of the Sleep() function.
For instance, the following little snippet of C++ on my P-III demonstrates
that the Sleep() function usually rounds up to the nearest 10 ms:
DWORD zzz = EditSleepAmount->Value,
started = timeGetTime(),
Sleep( zzz );
slept = timeGetTime() - started;
LabelResults->Caption = (AnsiString)"That *actually* took " + slept +
Anyhow, it is possible that the P-III is faster than the P-VI -- I think the
first round of P-VIs that came out actually had worse performance than their
