Our $8000 666 MHz UP2000 (21264 Alpha) machine runs a single packet from 
seti@home in 6 hrs 5 minutes on average. Compare that to our $2000 1.2 GHz 
AMD Athlon, which runs it in 6 hrs 20 minutes on average.

For a little more direct comparison, the same molecular simulation on the 
UP2000 using the Compaq Fortran for Linux compiler took 4 minutes vs 2 
minutes on the Athlon using the NAG compiler. Full optimization was on for 
both. I was pretty suprised and shocked at the difference between compilers 
and platforms.
