query about short addresses

How fast on average can short addresses (BM-N) be created on high-end hardware? On my older box (without GPU) it takes on average 5 minutes. It can generate about 12 addresses per hour. Is there any way to optimize this process?

On a 4 year old cheap laptop running Tails and a number of programs including a dozen Tor Browser tabs I just generated 12 random short addresses in python in 7m10.332s. High-end hardware is likely to be better than every 36 seconds. It shuold be obvious from the differences between our rates that optimizations are possible.

Is your bitmessage install generating the addresses with the GPU?
