While running the RC5-64 v2.6401 client on my Win95/Cyrix 6x86 machine,
I've noticed 2 things:
1. The speed of the RC5-64 v2.6401 client (262 kk/s) is slower than the RC5-56
v2.004 (280 kk/s) on my Cyrix 6x86-166+. In both cases, I use the Cyrix
2. The nice settings seem to be different in the RC5-64 v2.6401 client. I ran
the RC5-56 v2.004 client on nice 2 (normal) and never noticed any slowdown or
lag. Running the RC5-64 v2.6401 client on nice 2 shows a bit of lag and
slower performance when trying to run something else. (Nice 1 is fine).
Is this normal, or are there more assembler optimizations that could be done
to make the RC5-64 client faster and better performing (as Remi's work did to
the RC5-56 v2.x clients?
