Well, I don't have the time to do this, but as listed on the DESCHALL
benchmark page:


Alpha 21164a 500MHz clone: 5.336Mkeys/sec  /    581Kkeys/sec 
Ultra Sparc 1 - 167MHz   : 2.400Mkeys/sec  /    340Kkeys/sec 
SGI Onyx2 (194 MHz R10k) : 2.114Mkeys/sec  /    332Kkeys/sec
Dual PPro 200		 : 2.003Mkeys/sec  /  1.003Mkeys/sec 
PowerMac 604e 200MHz     : 1.095Mkeys/sec  /    590Kkeys/sec
PowerBook 603e 240MHz    : 1.086Mkeys/sec  /    695Kkeys/sec
Pentium 166		 :   835Kkeys/sec  /    221Kkeys/sec

(Couldn't find the database that used to be out there).

So you can use that to extrapolate where we'd be in keyrate with DES.
