Ah. I didn't know there were two. Then this is a dual 133 MHz box. And I propose
that the keyrate is in fact 820 kkeys/sec for both processors, and 410 kkeys/sec
for one processor. (This BeBox pretty much doesn't get used at all.) But if
anyone else has access to a dual PowerPC machine, it would be good to get those
benchmarks as well.
