Some CPUs, such as the Vortex86 (formerly SiS 550) are particularly bad on the performance per MHz ratio, and the VIA C3 and C7 are not much better. For me it is surprising to see how well the old and “Code morphing” Transmeta CPUs perform for their time.

Some more results are also quoted in my Atom performance post.
