And don't forget that the new PS3 and the NVidia clients that'll be 
coming out will put a serious hurt on RC5-72. I believe that the PS3 was 
quoted doing on the order of 150Mkeys/s and the NVidia clients were way 
up there as well - something like 18Mkeys/s for the budget GeForce 8500 
boards, and I guess about 140 Mkeys/s for the 8800 GTX's.
