Thanks for the info... I guess that for geng on small graphs, there
is no speed-up due to the 64-bit word length, so probably most of
this speedup can be attributed just to the increased clock speed, and
probably better peripherals..
I wonder if there is a more significant speed-up on bigger graphs,
where the 64-bit word length would mean fewer operations need be done..
