Actually, PC's do a better job on this particular algorithm.  I run an SGI
Octane with 2 175MHz mips R10000's, and collectively they only barely go
over 400 Kkeys/sec.  A decent PPro or PII can get well over that.  A 16
node IBM SP-2 (basically, half of Deep Blue) gets ~2.4 Mkeys/sec, which is
pretty good, but you can that same kind of performance a lot cheaper with
a bunch of PC's.
