The K6 like the PPro is optimized for 32 bit operation, and will perform better at 32 bit than 16 bit. Thus is barely beats a P55C at 16bit, but it should beat a similarly clocked PPro/PII at 32 bit as well. It is no coincidence that whenever AMD has been showing the K6 they have shown it running NT.

I think the M2 will clearly beat the K6 at 16 bit operations, since 6x86 would, but for 32 bit the picture is unclear.
