good point. I had assumed the quoted numbers were merely in-cache,
but it does claim to be running on array size 2e6 (8e6 bytes),
which seems a bit large for in-cache. (though very small for a Stream run).
this quotes a plausible 64-65 GB/s on a C870 (76.8 peak theoretical).

this is implausible. my guess is the timing code is broken.
