No.

What flavour of alpha is it? A noname (AXPpci33) or one of the other
alphas built around the 21066? Seeing that sort of lacklustre
performace would be disconcerting from one of the current generation
of alphas, but seeing it from an older machine is no more surprising
than noticing that your P200 performs better than a 386.

My 21164a PC164 500 MHz alpha goes through about 4000k keys/second. Fast,
no?

Yours etc.,
