In interpreted languages, it just takes longer to get stuff done - I earlier gave the example where the Python source code a = b + c would result in a BINARY_ADD byte code which takes 78 machine instructions to do the add, but it's a single native ADD instruction if run in compiled language like C or C++. How can we speed this up? Or as the performance expert would say, how do I decrease...
The Intel® Xeon® processor E5-2600 v4 product family, code-named Broadwell EP, is a two-socket platform based on Intel’s most recent microarchitecture. Intel uses a “tick-tock” model associated with its generation of processors. This new generation is a “tick” based on 14nm process technology. Major architecture changes take place on a “tock,” while minor architecture changes and a die shrink...
My current gig is mostly about performance. I manage a group of software engineers dedicated to the languages becoming really important to the cloud and the datacenter.
