This in illogical and unquantifiable nonsense.

Without wanting to open another can of worms, it's obvious to me that JC
has never operated an A9 side by side with an Iyonix for 'beefy' tasks.

Beefy would normally be compiling a sizable C program (unlikely) or
editing and printing a large document (possibly) :-)

I hadn't considered the former as a typical end-user's test. I've made a rule
for my testing that tests should use free or commonly available software that
works on both machines with files that can be made publicly available. Does
that rule out such a test?
