A short comment on speed

In early February we had some discussion on speed of Revolution compared 
with HC. My own experience at the times was that RR was about the same 
speed, but in colour of course. The activities at the time involved 
retrieving information on multiple cards.

Today I converted another of my HC stacks. It is compute-intensive, 
taking typically 16 seconds to execute two converging optimisations on 
data which is on a single card (and is put into variables for the 
calculation of course).
That time was in HC. In RR, the same thing took just one second.
I am pretty happy about that.
