I was looking at the IL generated on 7970 using LDS only.  Each Encrypt
call has approximately 540 instruction at IL level.  However according to
your previous estimates each Encrypt call has 16*16+4+5 = 275 rusling in an
estimated speed of 52K c/s.   Since the number of instruction is doubled we
should expect at least half of your previous estimates say roughly 26K c/s.
But we are nowhere near that.  I guess your previous estimates were based
on the fact that each instruction takes 1 clock cycle to execute, is it?
But it looks like not all instructions rquire same number of clock cycle on
