About 4 years ago, I wrote an assembly program under DOS that could
transfer 300,000 nybbles/sec over the parallel port. It assembled
3 nybbles into 12-bit data on the fly, no handshaking, but did poll
data_valid bit. 486DX-33 [dark ages of clock speed].

Let's see 100,000/.12sec = 833,000/sec
720mhz/33 = 21.8 faster
21.8 * 2[speedup fudge factor] = 43.6
300,000/sec*43.6 = 13,080,000/sec

13,080,000/Win98 = 833,000/sec - yep, sounds about right.
