    YMMV, but IMO it's all about the drivers on Linux.

    For example I'd use NVIDIA and CUDA any day over half assed OpenCL solution AMD offers. AMD/ATI made great hardware, but the drivers have always...

    WTF man. System memory *IS* the graphics memory when talking about Intel HD graphics. What cache? L1-L3? You can't use e.g. instruction cache for graphics assets. L3 might be useful, don't know if...

    Eh, "16GB of DDR3 system memory". Does Michael have any clue about Intel graphics? The speed of system memory has huge effect on graphics performance. Was it ddr3-1600 or something decent for gaming?...

    Don't get me wrong, but I don't follow your logic. Surely an app like email client has some fixed hardware requirements. What's the point in adding more and more bloat if the hardware is fast?...

    Any idea how a C++ based server would compete against PHP? The last server backend I was working with was a Xeon X7560 with 64-bit Linux and custom socket event loops for 3 Intel server gigabit NICs....

    I doubt that will appear in the near future. The thing is

    - you need arm64 because the apps are getting slower and more bloated. You need enormous amount of power now to fire up even simple apps...

    I wonder if it's relevant in any way to benchmark PHP. It's interpreted so it can't be fast. If you need speed, nowadays you use GPU acceleration or buy more cores. In server use, throughput >...

    You're right. That's how it works. However stupid and ignorant audience always asks this question when you use GPL and fears the program is badly tainted even if the fact is that it isn't. It would...

    Aren't compiled languages like D much faster for high performance stuff?

    Some companies cannot use gpl apps even internally so using LLVM is preferred in the long run. There are many such reasons. llvm might be technically better in a long run and also apple won't support...

    Sorry, but I'd pick LLVM any day over GCC. The problem with building GPL2/3 tainted binaries can be huge in enterprise environments. CLANG isi the fist compiler truly free for corporate use. Besides...
