3. We can then decide which CPU to use. Either NEC R4200 or
IDT Orion. This depends on the price/power relations as
well as on the availability.
How does the performance/price of the Orion compare to the R4200?
As I understand it if you go with the IDT then people who wish to spend
more can go with the R4000pc (i.,e they are pin compat). While personally
I find the R4200 to have a very attractive price/performance we might
want to consider the above. (Of course it's likely a R4200 pin compat chip
with hardware fpu will be avail. in the future).
