Could someone with an i7 cpu running linux tell me what they get running the command:

$ openssl speed rsa2048

along with CPU frequency and whether you are running 32 or 64 bit Linux please?

For comparison, my 32 bit C2D @2.66GHz here manages 94.9 signs/sec:

sign verify sign/s verify/s
rsa 2048 bits 0.010537s 0.000260s 94.9 3840.1
