That benchmark doesn't do a great job of isolating the encryption from
the rest of the overheads; a better general test is:
openssl speed aes-128-cbc br-cbc rc2-cbc # ... see help for others
That will give you exactly the encryption of speed stuff. Generally
blowfish used to win, but now AES does, which isn't a shock given they
are both designed to run efficiently on modern hardware.
