The performance hit is likely to come with large arrays. For small arrays
the call overhead will dominate and most of the data will reside in cache
anyway. It is large arrays where the cache awareness of ATLAS makes a
difference in performance and the difference can be a substantial. Where did
you get ATLAS from? Did you build it yourself?
