If i do the following, on a 5-year old laptop i got:

sage: R = BooleanPolynomialRing(256,'x')
sage: P = R.random_element(degree=8, terms=100)
sage: L = [ZZ.random_element(2) for _ in range(256)]
sage: %timeit P(*L)
1000 loops, best of 3: 988 µs per loop


Which seems not so long, especially if you only have 256 polynomials to test. So, could you please be more precise on how you constructed your polynomials, what are your timings, and which timinlgs do you expect ?
