FPU performance issue?

Hey folks

Apologies if this has been answered a hundred times already - I had a look and couldn't find anything.

I'm running FS-UAE (64bit) on macOS 10.13 on a 2015 12" MacBook (1.1GHz dual core Core-M CPU) and while integer speed is excellent (700-900 MIPs in SysInfo), the FPU performance seems to be less impressive (30-40MFLOPs in SysInfo).

I'm using the A4000/PPC config, with lots of RAM, UAEGFX and bsdsocket.library.

Am I doing something wrong? Or is this expected? I've attached my config if it helps

I haven't got any numbers on what "should be correct", but FPU math is more demanding than Integer math, and emulating FPU instructions may also in many cases add more overhead than emulating integer instructions.

(In addition, not all FPU operations are implemented in JIT, in which case the instruction is emulated using the slower interpreter).

So I'd say nothing is wrong...
