The fact is that the discrete logarithm problem (DLP) is solved using different algorithms in the cases of multiplicative groups (where normal DH applies) and elliptic curves (where ECDH applies). The behavior of these algorithms is quite different. For multiplicative groups, where the NFS for logarithm is used, a huge part of the computation depends only ...
