just a slight correction: the name of the JS VM is still Spidermoney. Ionmonkey is just the optimization engine inside the VM.
isnt this solving problems which Rust is already solving ? (and rust is completely FOSS, AFAIK)
So apart from apple fanbois, why would anyone choose this ?
Can we have AMD's Open64 in a compiler shootout Vs. GCC ?
Compare GCC 4.7/4.8 vs Open64 release/latest revision .
Does any program uses Ivy-Bridge's hardware Random Number Generator (Codenamed : Bull Mountain) ?
Couldnt agree more that "more faster = more energy efficient" on all of todays, and a lot of yesterdays hardware.
Apple fanboyism >> technical and perf superiority of Linux.
And Apple is soooo much better. It made me give up my typewriter.
Slightly Off-topic :
Has anyone tried compiling Open-Office on a Ivy bridge/Piledriver platform with march=native , -O3 and LTCG options ?
Does it give substantial improvements ?
Actually, Rust and Servo have been in development for about a year now. The source code is completely open, go download it. Most of the work on these two have been done by Mozilla employees.
Or have obsolete drivers, which dont expose enough API's, and crash.
who uses LLVM pipe on windows ?
I can think of maybe Chrome, when Hardware acceleration is not available...
Using BFS for desktop users should be OK, as they generally have at max a 4core+4HTT system . Servers have >8 cores, and they need the throughput and scalability of CFS.
Desktop users generally...
I'm so excited by this. Finally someone who is hand tuning code for latest instruction sets.
This Chris Wilson is almost single handedly giving Intel a good name in the open source world.
This reminded me (again) of Linaro Android builds, which use compiler optimisations, and other small tweaks to increase performance.
Now if only they can resolve the other several power regressions, that would be great.
This is excellent engineering. But hardly a surprise, conidering that F2FS has been excplicitly designed for Flash based devices, keeping in mind all the quirks.
And AFAIK, Ext4 and BTRFS are more...
and thats the major announcement for Firefox ? That it has PDF reader ? Which was available as pdf.js addon ages ago.
What happened to those times when 1 major version change brought tons of...
Not fsyncing data to the "disc" is OK-ish for me. Reason : It is developed primarily for flash storage.
I saw all the linked results as well.
Basically, a few percent improvement. About 4-5% over stock.
Free performance is always good, but may be not at the cost of 3X time and 2.5X RAM use.
i hope to god that Intel engineeres add some automagical compiler support for AVX2 and the TX memory instructions.
