Did you use a loop and devide by 100? I guess you shouldn't!
The array of 100000 Bytes fits (at least) into L2-Cache, so you measure 
L2-speed starting with the 2nd iteration. But video data destination will 
probably not be L2, so the (higher) number you get in a first run would be a 
better value for comparisson. Am I right?
