[RC5] Question on i386 RC5 cores

The 80x86 cores are already coded in highly optimized assembley language.
There are even different cores for various different x86 cpu's  (IE MMX,
AMD, etc) which utilize some of the special features of these cpu's.

Subject: [RC5] Question on i386 RC5 cores


Has anyone thought of doing any programming of the RC5 cores in 80x86
assembler?  Just the actual brute-force algorythm.  I think this could
squeeze a little more speed out of the cores for the (i386) majority of
processors.
