Right, use whatever format benchmarks fastest.

For the record, in latest code on GitHub (next release) they are renamed 
so the nt2 is now "NT" and the older NT format is "NT-old". The reason 
for this is that the former supports AVX2 and higher and then becomes 
significantly faster than the latter.
