I was curious, so I checked:

C:\Users\Zachary\code\\3.5>python.bat -m test.pystone
Running Debug|x64 interpreter...
Pystone(1.2) time for 50000 passes = 1.14142
This machine benchmarks at 43805 pystones/second

C:\Users\Zachary\code\\3.5>python.bat -m test.pystone
Running Release|x64 interpreter...
Pystone(1.2) time for 50000 passes = 0.421115
This machine benchmarks at 118732 pystones/second

C:\Users\Zachary\code\\3.5>python.bat -m test.pystone
Running PGUpdate|x64 interpreter...
Pystone(1.2) time for 50000 passes = 0.281218
This machine benchmarks at 177798 pystones/second

These were run on a Windows 8.1 Virtualbox VM on a Mac.  For reference, here's the results for the host machine using python3.5.0 from

$ python3 -m test.pystone
Pystone(1.2) time for 50000 passes = 0.413982
This machine benchmarks at 120778 pystones/second
