    Not exactly.

    the intel system(not the cpu) held a performance advantage of about 4% in those benchmarks. However it did so with 8 more cores. The IBM system benchmarked used 6 core processors but...

    Here is a quick small asm hack I made to the radeon r600_shader.c file in mesa. Note it is only two instructions. It sure beats doing a loop with a test in the middle. lets see if you can get a c...
