Wrong. With the most recent version of MAME, a 3GHz Pentium 4 or so can run System 22 games at a playable rate if frameskipping is turned on. Additionally, System 16 is a hell of a lot better source for arcade board information than some crappy magazine that can't even spell "Gouraud" correctly. Welcome to 2006!

Oh, additionally, here's a comprehensive overview of System 22's hardware, and here's a comprehensive overview of the base Model 2 hardware. By any metric, it's a hell of a lot better than a clip from an article where the author didn't know what he was talking about.
