As another comparison point, I'm running DESChallMac on a PowerTower Pro
225, and it goes at about 1200-1350K keys/sec. However, my PowerMac
6100/60AV goes at only 165-170K keys/sec. (On the 6100/60AV, I increased
the FGRUN from 30 to 240; without the increase, it only goes at 145-155K
keys/sec. The PTP is running with FGRUN at the default 30, however.)
