“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:
After applying a new technology (a new processor, a hardware accelerator, a new instruction, etc) besides measuring the immediate performance delta one requires a method to verify that this technol
Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB) 4.2 Update 4 introduced enhanced support for managing floating-pointing settings.
Starting with version 7.12.0, Intel® SDE has Intel® TSX-related instruction and memory access logging features which can be useful for debugging Intel® TSX's capacity aborts.
I have unintentionally raised a large debate recently concerning the question if it is legal in C/C++ to use the &P->m_foo expression with P being a null pointer.
