In my experience better. Also the last generations of 68k Macs used 68040. And this were more than a few.

Amigas went on to also utilize later 68k cpu's, though mostly via 3rd party plugin boards/replacementboards. One of the FPC devels has a 68060.

Similar "upgrade" boards for the 68k macs contained PPC 601s mostly.

Afaik a common source of confusion is that 68040's are labelled according to their base speed, and not "base speed x multiplier" as Intel (DX2-66 = 2x 33 vs a 68040-33). Maybe because afaik the 68k wasn't entirely x2.
