Overclocking Blizzard PPC

Hello, and thank you very much for your dedication to WinUAE Toni.

I have been experimenting with AmigaOS 4.1 FE over the last few days trying to come up with an optimal configuration.

The Cyberstorm A4000-based emulation is nice and fast but limits you to 128MB of RAM which is just not good enough to do anything serious on the desktop.

The Blizzard A1200-based emulation allows 256MB of RAM and that is actually quite decent, enough to do much more than the Cyberstorm.

However, the Blizzard PPC is clocked much lower than the Cyberstorm and also has a slower hard-drive access time as it is IDE instead of SCSI.

I don't know how technically feasible it is but how about overclocking that Blizzard PPC processor and also the IDE interface? Allow the options to change the processor clocks and like accelerated floppy access do that as well to the IDE interface.

If that is even possible then it would make the Blizzard emulation the go-to emulation considering it may be easier to do that than raise the 128MB limit on the Cyberstorm side.
