[rc5] PPro speed increase?

I have several PPro 200's running, and they all get about ~480kkeys/sec
using the v2 client (up from about 330kkeys/sec with v1)...all of mine are
running either win95 or winnt.  (interestingly enough, dual ppro 200's get
~480 per processor, so here's one app where a dual processor really is
twice as fast as a 1p)

Subject:  [rc5] PPro speed increase?

Hi there,

  a while ago, I remember having read, the V2 clients should yield about
20% more keys/sec than the V1.

  With the V1 linux-elf clients on my PPro150 I managed to get ~245.000
keys/sec, and now I tried the V2 linux-elf-PPro clients - and those yield
1.290.000 keys/sec (i.e. a 426% increase).

  Now - is that increase correct, or is rc5v2 "goofing up"?

  Please respond to this, as I won't spread the v2 client to the other
PPros around until I get some confirmation of this speedup...
