I doodle a lot with realtime raytracing, and the latest intel compiler
beats them all, latest vc is not far from intels but beats gcc (not sure
about the very latest ver. though)
That vc6 would outperform the latest just sound very strange.
Ah, that's why I still love my mingw/VC++ 6.0 combo ;)
Does one BTW get any performance increase from
the lastest MS compilers?
Don't know for Lua itself, but for other things
the fact that the latter compilers (including the
free ones) can use the SSE and SSE2 instruction sets of
current processors, is a major change.
That's only an advantage if you were previously using an MS compiler,
though, since gcc has long provided code generation options for specific
CPUs and CPU features, e.g.
Anyone benchmarked the change (if any) in Lua performance when using
-mtune= to target the latest and greatest CPU when one is available?
Or done a VC6 versus VC8 benchmark? (We already have one report of VC9 <
