On this list we prefer bottom-posting to top-posting (see, 
please place your answers at the end of the previous message instead of the top.

As for the libraries, I think those you are using are the reference 
implementations which are more
portable but less optimized. 

If you can install an implementation optimized for your specific hardware
that would probably be faster, the most potular among such implementations
right now are ATLAS and OpenBlas.
