Re: Eigenvalues in Mathematica 6.0.0 are SLOW

Eigenvalues are computed using a third-party (Intel) linear algebra
library. Different versions of this library are optimized better or
worse for different processors and/or operating systems. For instance,
the libraries were optimized for the original AMD Athlon (WinXP) in
Math5.0, but not anymore in Math5.2. Thus, linear algebra with Athlon
machine became slower.

processor also.
