trying to get an idea of how my scrypt mining script speed relates to bogomips and to benchmarks at cpubenchmark.net. answer: not so much. I get anywhere from 15.4 hashes per second per benchmark-rating on my netbook with an Atom N2800 (benchmark 651) to 39.8 with an Athlon X2 Dual Core 5600+. so I guess the only real way to know how it will perform on a certain CPU is to try it. and the cheapest way I know to do that is with the Amazon cloud, if indeed it emulates the CPU speeds reliably.

bogomips calculations were even worse, won't bother mentioning them. doesn't say "bogo" for nothing.
