    A cache miss occurs when the CPU checks to see if the data it needs is located in the L2 cache. If it isn't there, it needs to grab it from L3 or main memory.

    This would make sense. If you are...

    Silly question, why ZSNES? It was great in it's time, but Snes9x (or more specifically, forks like Snes9x GX) and BSNES/Higan have passed it by.

    It happens even on OSS; someone changes something, some application is reported as breaking, either app or source get updated to fix the problem.

    Not terribly shocking. On the Intel side, they have a number of OGL 3.3 functions that simply do not work properly on their HD3000/HD4000 series of iGPUs. On the AMD side, historically, going back...

    Pretty much this. Visual Studio's debugging/development capabilities far exceed anything else. I've had to work with GDB ONCE (frontend was GPS, for an Ada project. Choice of language was...

    There's these wonderful things called a CPU cache, register renaming, pipeline optimizations, and the like, that turn your hand-crafted assembly code into a really unoptimized mess. Unless your...

    Exactly. Implementation matters. In Linux, OGL is implemented through MESA, in Windows, though a few .dll's.

    I mean sheesh, the GPU's understand the function calls, so that leaves you just...

    Actually, compilers do better at register allocation then humans. Take the iterator of a FOR loop; you'd think that keeping that in a register is good for performance, but most times, compilers will...

    C+ allows developers to get things done without holding their hands. C++ will let you do just about anything, but it won't hold your hand to protect you if you don't know what you're doing. It's...

    You know the actual language used isn't a big huge factor in performance if coded optimally, right? The algorithms used is a much bigger factor in performance. Those algorithms might be sub-optimal...

    Stupid question: Why are upstream projects relying on functionality from the Init system? Seems to be there's a more fundamental problem at work here: one of basic kernel design.

    Uh, no. FX 8350 <> i7 2600k. Once you hit the 3770k, performance is pretty much always in Intels favor. Heck, we still see plenty of benchmarks where the i3 3220 matches the 8350, and that's just...

    To be fair, Witcher 2 is a LOT more intensive then Borderlands 2. Even on Windows, my 770 GTX can barely handle Ubersampling.

    If you go by NT Kernel versions, then yes.

    Vista, if you had the hardware requirements to run it well, wasn't that bad aside from the overboard UAC. Seven was great; first time I had a Windows OS...
