Archimedes A410/1 ARM2 to ARM3 upgrade

The ARM processors were always significantly faster than other processors of the same age and price range and the ARM2 processor fitted to the Archimedes range of computers was no exception. As you can see from the screenshot below, the ARM2 processor delivered around 4.85 MIPS. As time went on though, the ARM2 processor was eclipsed by other processors including the ARM3 processor which could be retro-fitted to the Archimedes computers delivering a significant increase in performance.
