computing times and output display

Running Mathematica version 5.2 on Windows XP Professional with an older 
Pentium III 833MHz processor and 512 GB of RAM.

Anyone know why 8^8^8 (or 9^9^9) takes several minutes to "compute" and 
display results, but in a new fresh kernel/environment 9^9^9. (decimal after 
the last number 9) one gets an almost instantaneous response?  Is this 
merely the difference in preparing for the output of the computation to the 
screen ...

Thanks in advance,

Steven Shippee
