Bandsaw blade speed - 3 replies

What is a good average speed for a 10” band saw? I purchased an older delta bench top that had a 1/8 hp motor that bogged down while cutting 1/2 plywood. I replaced it with a 1/2 hp and it cuts right through a 4×4, but the speed seems a little fast. I calculated the current speed of the 10” wheel at 560 rpm.
