The question is how much do we gain from larger blocks?
If its nothing or negligible then i think its better if we just
ignore larger blocks and not bother coming up with complex or slow
code ...

Also note that for smaller blocks the memset(0) will eat the overwhelming
majority of the time. zeroing 256 elements vs. a loop with 4*4 iterations ...

There will always be a question for which you do not know the correct awnser.
