It doesn't make a difference what hardware. I have 4 boxes that run gentoo 
(Athlon 2200, Athlon 3200, Apple G4, Sparc U60) and they all run the actual 
sync quite fast, but the 50%-51% takes from 5 minutes on the 3200 to 30 
minutes on the G4 and U60.

As I mentioned though, I don't let this bother me as I generally sync ~4:00am 
whilst sleeping.
