As planned for the december release R5, the Apollo Team is currently testing some performance improvements on 68080.
 
Here the score of normal speed x12 release core: (not overclocked!)

Our goal is of course to improve performance of all Vampire cards.
We work continously to improve them.
The above test was on V4SA.

We work on several internal Core optimizations.
This instruction set is the same. For the coder nothing changes.
But we tune the core to execute some instructions even slightly faster. E.g. multibit divide = means faster divider
We are currently looking into several areas to tune the speed a little.

Nice work!

Faster processors week hey?
You should add some fuzzy graphs with nice curves and no legend, like the M1 presentation. ;)

More seriously, an before/after comparison in Sysinfo would be cool as I can't recall the original numbers. (currently happy with my stable older core on v500 but it may be worth the flash if the boost is significant)

Thanks for all the hard work Apollo team!
