The time when programmers did their best to minimize an application code size have gone.
On a weekly basis I see or read some sort of craziness around what a PC is. Seems pretty simple right? After all...
“Why Should I Update GCC x86 Compiler?” or “GCC Compiler Performance on Intel® Atom™ from Version to Version”
I’ll try to figure out what is new for Intel® Atom™ architecture in new versions of GCC and how this affects performance and code size on the well-known EEMBC CoreMark* benchmark:
By now, many of you have heard of Intel® Transactional Synchronization Extensions (Intel® TSX).
