Mostly 3d games. But most are improved. For example shoot em ups that dont slow down.

And dbug. Some games that really benefit from faster CPU are:

Quartz, Dragonbreed, Plutos, Wonderboy in Monsterland, Frantick, Erik, Navy Seals, R-Type II

I think it does that on falcon too. At least it is too fast to be playable
