Interesting but not too surprising results.

Intel ark doesn't seem to know any processor called "U4100" so I cannot
figure out what generation it belongs to.

IIRC, Intel has not improved plain 64b/64b division since Haswell, which
is older than 5 years.

Again, if IIRC, small quotients may result in 16 cycle latency.  That's
the lowest possible timing.
