Only if you define "industry" in a very restricted sense.
On a souped-up motherboard, Intel's latest and best manages 2/3 the
SPECint95 and 1/3 the SPECfp95 of what DEC had in August of last year:

Intel PD440FX PentiumII 66/233 512+16/16 9.49 6.43 May97
Intel PD440FX PentiumII 66/266 512+16/16 10.8 6.89 May97
