Massive improvement indeed. :O
Must...compile...whole system...with it...
Just noticed this on the Pathscale CTO's twitter feed:
Have to agree with him. Michael could have sat silently on this for all this time but instead dripped it out and essentially gave it away (smart move giving out the exact price) so that he could generate four posts of ad-juicing goodness. Pretty scummy.@michaellarabel - Sorry about the delays, but I'm extremely disappointed in your impatience to respect our delays for the release. --karma
Michael, if you want people to talk to you in confidence, you have to show you'll respect their secrecy when they explicitly ask for it.
More information is needed.
Note, I'm guessing firefox and chrome won't compile.
Is it speculatively running code ahead of time on other cpu cores? What are the compile times and binary size like compared to GCC?
where can we find this patch please?The Linux kernel can even be built with this high-performance compiler after applying a trivial patch.
also, I understand this compiler is Intel® 64 & AMD64 performance tuned but does anybody knows if it will run on 32bit?
