It is my desire to buy an ARM based MacBook in the future and to write the asm routines for it at that time. Of course others are welcome to do that as well.

The downside of ARM is that the choices for programs to execute PRP tests is very limited.
I'm planning to buy an ODROID N2+ in the coming days for the express purpose of learning and testing ARM assembly (and as a replacement for my old RPi 2 B+ that hasn't worked in years). I'll let you know when it arrives if I feel up to porting the ASM routines.
