Results are about par especially for the 3CPu game. The PocketPC just can't handle that horsepower without video card support.
I am hoping to get additional performance on the rebuild that I am working on. However I have no time frame on even a beta release of that.
Try a few games liek frogger, crazy kong, and 1943. They seem to run well.
