Here are some sample timings. Tests were done by WRI with a beta version of
Mathematica for PowerPc. They were run on Power Macintosh 6100/60

returns 0.066667 Second (0.4 sec on Quadra 700)

returns 1.3 Second (9.78 sec on Quadra 700)

returns 13.216 Second (114.5 sec on Quadra 700)

Other tests return values that are between 1/3 to 1/15 of the times
obtained with a Quadra 700.

I would be glad to send you the whole tests if you send me your address.>
