I meant difference in ecryption/decryption speed, not real
numbers (it was an example from virtual machine and
in 32bit mode in fact).

Yes, speed should be much higher on recent systems.

At least it motivates people to try it :)

When you are playing with it: you can try to
unload/blackist various kernel modules
(aesni_intel, aes_x86_64, ...) and check difference.
