Hmm...does anyone have any figures on how much slower Mlucas and Glucas are as compared to Prime95 (that is, all running on an x86 CPU)? I think I've heard that those were significantly slower, too, though still better than nothing. The same might apply for the generic LLR application, simply because there currently is no other LLR option for non-x86 CPUs.
