If you want to run the Delta 44 at 96 kHz sampling 2 radio
channels in I/Q mode for 96 kHz bandwidth (4 audio channels)
you will need a Pentium III at 600 MHz or equivalent.
With a Pentium MMX at 200 MHz you can process something
like 2 x 20 kHz bandwidth but if it is an old Pentium without
MMX, the cpu speed will limit your bandwidth to 2 x 10kHz or so.
