mark i have also a dual xeon system and was not satisfied with the keyrate,
but the cores are not as optimized yet i guess.  i think you should be
getting more than 1.7 Mkeys though... i am getting about 3.8 Mkeys with 2
2.8GHz. youre sure there is nothing else running using cpu time?  so the
xeon is an older architecture?

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?
