Indeed. As good as no change on a 733 Mhz single Itanium here:

The best core for RC5 is still #9 (jasonp P5/MMX), 161,745 keys/sec.
Every other core is between 92,000 (#8) and 134,000 (#5) keys/sec.

But at OGR, I realized a small improvement on both cores:

core #0: 631,358 nodes/sec
core #1: 628,085 nodes/sec

core #0: 636,467 nodes/sec
core #1: 638,398 nodes/sec

(tested five times, nearly the same (+/- 200 nodes/sec).

Unfortunately, the Itanium still isn't the best choice as a d.net-
numbercruncher, I think there is no other architecture with such bad
speed / power consumption ratio. ;)
