I think this is pretty relevant. XO-1.75 is roughly similar
CPU-performance wise to a XO-1.5, will be a bit faster with a fully
optimized toolchain and compiler, which we don't have for 11.3.0 (but
plan to have for 12.1.0).

The solid state disk storage is much faster on XO-1.75.

The GPU is currently slower, but potentially a bit faster.

You can think about it as a bit faster than XO-1.5, with much lower
power draw, and lower price. As any generalization, it's only valid if
you don't look into the details...
