Depends on lot of things, as Mark has hinted.
But, why are you rewriting fortran subroutines to py ? Expecially for
this kind of array processing.

And, if it's no secret, would you mind telling what do you need an
array of that size for ?
I cannot think of many uses that would require an array of that size
and that many dimensions, which couldn't be rewritten in a more
efficient manner, to several smaller arrays.
