Irix performance

Adding a bit to what I said earlier, I'm getting about 480 Kkeys/s on a
250 MHz R4400 running Irix 6.2, and 820 Kkeys/s on an R10000, also
running 6.2. I'm wondering if the much worse performance on the 5.3 box
(~180 Kkeys/s) is because of the OS or because it only has a 1 MB L2
cache, vs. 2 MB on the 4400 running 6.2 (plus a little extra for 250 vs
200 MHz).
