    The point is that, for historical reasons, the GPU has been treated as a kind of weird peripheral, not as a kind of CPU that just happens to use a different ISA from the main CPU. Suppose you have a...

    No, he means back-ends. The whole point is that the front-end is language specific, and generates IR. a "neutral" middle part optimizes the IR. Then a back-end generates CPU specific machine...

    What EXACTLY are you claiming?
    Which of
    (a) Dart, RUN ON A BROWSER THAT SUPPORTS NATIVE DART is faster than JS or
    (b) Dart, COMPILED TO JS, is faster than JS?

    If (a), presumably that's only...
  4. I have no idea why you are so angry. Or for that...

    I have no idea why you are so angry. Or for that matter where you got your numbers from.

    Let's LOOK at the numbers:
    iPad Air at 1.4GHz. Geekbench single core rating is 1371:...
  5. To add to the (remarkably few) facts in this...

    To add to the (remarkably few) facts in this thread, x32 buys you about 10% in performance over x64. That's not bad, especially in contexts like phone and tablet where large address spaces are...
  6. I don't know what benchmarks you're looking at,...

    I don't know what benchmarks you're looking at, but the statements above strike me as very wrong.
    A more accurate claim, IMHO, would be that (averaged over a range of code) the Apple A7 has about...
  7. I don't think this tells us anything we didn't...

    I don't think this tells us anything we didn't know, primarily that AVX2 support is not yet ready for primetime. I expect the AVX2 cost metrics are far from accurate, hence the occasional regression...
  8. The problem with moving OpenGL forward is...

    The problem with moving OpenGL forward is POLITICAL as much as technical. There is a substantial contingent within Khronos for whom backwards compatibility matters more than anything else.
    THIS,...

    Apple has SAID NOTHING about the future plans for Metal. All they have said is that TODAY it supports only the A8. Obviously come September it will also support the A8. Who knows what happens after...
  10. I think you don't have a clue about the actual...

    I think you don't have a clue about the actual economics of the situation. I've no idea how you define "wide adoption" but ALREADY Crytek, Unity, Electronic Arts, and Epic Games have all announced...

    For Christ's sake, this "theorizing" is totally retarded.
    The reason Apple is not releasing Swift as open-source today is absolutely obvious --- the syntax IS NOT YET FROZEN.
    Apple have said this...

    Oh for crying out loud. That's like asking for proof that the sky is blue. Reading anything by Matt Dillon makes this obvious.

    Go to the damn Dragonfly page. Let's look at eg:...

    Thanks for the tech update. I follow LLVM closely, but I only get to learn what's really happening in GCC from these sorts of posts.
    To my mind the real benefit from code reordering is not so much...
  14. There was a thread on the LLVM dev list about six...

    There was a thread on the LLVM dev list about six weeks ago discussing PDF. The essential point, as I recall it, is that the claim you make ("ignore inconsistencies caused by concurrent updates" is...
  15. I assume both gcc and llvm are not using LTO at...

    I assume both gcc and llvm are not using LTO at this point --- or have both tamed their LTO memory usage enough that this is now feasible for something as large as the LINUX kernel? If so, does LTO...

    EXACTLY!
    At least there is one commenter on this board who's not a complete idiot.
    Hint, boys --- not EVERYTHING is dick-measuring contest. Not even everything comparing GCC to LLVM.
  17. You do realize (given your oh-so-clever "crapple"...

    You do realize (given your oh-so-clever "crapple" comments) that Blink is licensed under what is essentially BSD? Likewise for Go.
    So you hate Google as well?

    How about MS? Damn, that Roslyn...
  18. WTF are you complaining about? You do realize...

    WTF are you complaining about? You do realize that Chris Lattner is an Apple employee and is, I am sure, compensated very comfortably. So who exactly is "taking" code from somebody who is "not being...

    Such a comparison is not really that helpful. Remember that DragonFly is not targeted at the same sort of machines and markets as FreeBSD --- it is designed for really large systems, and all choices...

    What exactly is the nature of the problem? For example:
    - is the issue an inability to have two drivers with the same name (or other such ID) on (some) systems? Can this not be fixed just by...
