[Speex-dev] Speex for TI MSP430 microcontroller - estimating CPU speed requirements?

Interested in building a speex codec (basically audio <-> speex <-> data
stream) using TI's small MSP430 microcontroller. Is there any way to
estimate feasibility based on CPU requirements? Example - speex is happily
encoding on an old Pentium-1 processor (166 MHz) using about half the CPU
(as reported under Linux); the TI microcontrollers are much slower yet
(8-16-25 MHz)  and there wouldn't be an OS per se - just "to the bare
metal" - so not sure this is even feasible...

Thanks for any comments,
