Not too bad, really. I offload the 7 splined axis' to a dsp card, it's buffer is a hundred points or so, it performs the interpolation, and returned variables are used to modify the remaining 4 axis, they are on another card.

I run the host PC at about 75% of it's horsepower peak, and the bulk of the math is simple calculation of instantaneous velocity in 3-dimension space on the surface of a cylinder using 7 axis movement.

So peak speed is about 3 inches per second. Slow for a cruise missle, but fast for grass growing..

It may be 'bilge' SY, but it is all over the internet.

Of course, so are all the 9-11 conspiracies, the anti-Einstein stuff, and pictures of the chupacabra.

Those pictures are faked. I just had dinner with the chupacabra, and even it could distinguish between the chardonnay and the pino blanc...

The only difference would be noise but only audible with volume
pushed well beyond the level at wich the nominal input level
would clip the amp.

All that would be left to compare would be either the noise
repartition , of course with no input signal or eventually
the accurracy of the preamps s RIAA curves if a signal
is to be compared...

Then google "alien abductions." Don't feel bad, though, there was at least one ueber-objectivist posting here who similarly didn't understand the difference between "distinction" and "preference."
