Re: 38 percent - maybe - it depends on how you count

I'm reminded of the Motorola boxes we had. The MVME330 was the basic ethernet interface (10 Mbit AUI, this was in the late '80s) that most of them had installed, then along came the MVME374 which was all "new! Shiny! Now even faster, because it's intelligent, it has its own processor and everything!" (still 10 Mbit AUI, tho') and seemingly not that long afterwards was the amazing upgrade to the MVME376, "no longer limited by a puny on-board processor, the new interface can take full advantage of the raw power of the system CPU!" etc. I presume it wasn't just a rebadged MVME330 but nothing would surprise me.
