[RC5] Athlon XP/MP even faster?

Its possible a faster core could be developed to take advantage of their new
but at the moment they run the same core [rc5 core #6 (RG/HB re-pair II)]
Athlons and Tbirds use.
Here is a quick comparison of keys / MHz on the Athlon systems I have access
Original K7, 800 MHz: 2,852,953 keys/sec: ~3566 keys/sec/MHz
Athlon MP 1.2 GHz: 4,230,781 keys/sec: ~3525 keys/sec/MHz
so it looks like with the current core Athlon MPs only scale linearly with
to Original Athlons. Sorry I don't have numbers from a Thunderbird, but I
can't seem to
log into one at the moment... Taking a look at what one turned into my
pproxy it looks
like it tracks this line as well, but mixing real world numbers with
benchmark numbers is
a recipe for confusion.

They're definitely faster clock for clock. Did you mean on RC5? With the
handcoded ASM I'm guessing the core's not that much different on the Palo's
from the T-bird. Most of the improvements wouldn't seem to be things that
would help RC5...
