They are different algorithms so it is to be expected the processing time
involved is different.  Currently CSC takes longer to process a block.  The speed
relative to RC5 varies depending on the CPU. For once my K6-200 is faster than my

The dnetc CSC code is C code while most RC5 clients are hand optimised assembly
code.  As such the rc5 clients are running with much higher effiency.  The
dechypher clients are optimised assembly code, and they run upto twice as fast.
Using their code i think some CPUs would be faster at CSC and RC5.
