hm, at DES the AMD K6-2 @ 350 Mhz have 4,183,844.38 keys/sec. How much
keys/sec produces an Intel Pentium II @ 350 and a Celeron @ 350?

All instructions, used at DES, are hardware coded at the AMD K6-2,
aren't they? That's why, Intel and AMD can be easily compared.

Thanks for answering my questions
