IB 4.2 was/is super server. The last classic IB server for Win32 was IB
4.1. It sounds as if you are not comparing classic to super server but
the first version of superserver (IB4.2) to what is essentially a
version that was improved throughout the IB 5.n and IB 6.0 beta releases.

FWIW, performance of Fb 1.5 promises to be even better.
