Well, streams really isn't a very interesting benchmark. It's the
traditional single-threaded cpu-only thing that just accesses things
linearly, and I'm not convinced the numbers should be taken to mean
anything at all.

The HPC people want to multi-thread things these days, and "cpu/memory
affinity" is a lot less clear then.

So I can easily imagine that the performance improvement is real, but
I really don't think "streams improves by X %" is all that
interesting. Are there any more relevant loads that actually matter to
people that we could show improvement on?
