A common misconception Although your CPU is now much faster, Blitter speed and chipram contention haven't changed. So although there is an improvement (as your vector calculations etc are quicker) the rendering speed hasn't really improved.

Any CPU heavy game that does a lot of calculations - like 'The Settlers' - that can run code from fastram/cache will be much improved. And any game using 'chunky' graphics (like most first person shooters) should have a big speedup too.
