Benchmarks When running tests, installing operating systems, and compiling software for my Ultra 5, I came to the stunning realization that hey, this system is 64-bit, and all of the operating systems I installed on this Ultra 5 (can) run in 64-bit mode.

Assembly in 32 bit OpenSSL but not the 64 bit version...

It looks like the 32 bit version of OpenSSL has some assembly code in it whereas the 64 bit version was compiled from C. So the performance gap isn't as large as what your graphs show in those tests.
