                 Results from KickSpeed 1.2 by Nic Wilson
                 ========================================

         68000, 1MB Chip, 0MB Fast: 5.53 seconds to read Kickstart 10 times
G-Force 040/33, 1MB Chip, 8MB Fast: 0.21 seconds to read Kickstart 10 times

The G-Force offers a 2,633% performance increase over a stock machine when
referencing the OS.  This means that anything that calls the OS in any way is
sped up considerably!

The G-Force gave my Picasso II quite a boost.  This is a comparison
between a Picasso II in a 25MHz 68030 based system versus the G-Force 040.
