Measuring 30b CPU speed reduction

RE: Measuring 30b CPU speed reduction

OK, I had a look in the 30b source code and what it does is that it counts the number of executed program steps and once it reaches 16384, it drops the CPU speed to 10Mhz.
So in theory you should get a 3.6* speed ratio, but since the speed to executed instructions is not linear (as discussed earlier), you get a little bit more speed than that.
I do not remember why 10Mhz was chosen at the time, but that is what it does.

The solver and IRR calculations also do something similar, but after 200 iterations.
