How does Intel come to it's performance numbers when compared to Microsoft?
Look at this for example:
Intel uses C++, C and Fortran but Microsoft has C++, C#, and F#
Please create a new thread at Intel C++ Compiler forum, where C++ compiler support team will look into your question. I'm sorry that I can't move this thread to that forum.
Thank you. -- Feilong H. Intel Developer Support
