I am running the windows client on a Dual Xeon 2.6 GHz system. My avg Keys/second for RC5-72 is 1,700,000 (aprox) total for 2 crunchers. On my P4 1.6GHz (1 GHz less) I get 2,200,000 keys/s and that's while running apps on my system. Any ideas why? It (the Xeon) is using Pipe #3 which benches as the fastest pipe. Is it because the Xeon is an older architecture than P4?
