The dhrystones numbers here don't seem right either. There must be
a lot of waits states on the memory or something. Even my lowly 20 Mhz
386 without memory interleaving hits 6200 dhrystones (without 
registers) and my brother's 25Mhz 386 with 8 Meg of ram allowing for
interleaving regularly hits 10,000 dhrystones.

Still the numbers that were posted for the 486 are impressive.
