Between these little RISC (or intel CISC) chips, there's not a lot of
difference.  Most muds need integer arithmetic, pointer manipulation and
text manipulation (mainly moving it around).  The common chips tend to
be good at the first 2 and so-so at the third.  If you want to get
something that good at all of them, you need something with a 390
instruction set (IBM CMOS technology designed for BIG databases) - but
they cost a lot of money...
