Hi, I know that this info has to be out there somewhere & I must be blind or something... What I want to find is a table list the cycles per op on the newer processors. I know I have to consider other things like pairing etc. but... if I'm going to be a speed freak I've gotta start with the basics I've been to http://developer.intel.com/ and downloaded the manuals & did a site search but to no avail. I also did a search here & in hotbot & google ...again no good. Could you clue in this clueless newbie? Please? I've gotta be missing the obvious!
take a look through Programmer Heavenit's got a asm section in there, with lots of optimisation docs, they have the cycle counts etc - take alook through the links too there are some good ones :-) Umbongo
rafe, Agner Fog's optimisation manual has micro-op timings for early pentiums up to PIII processors. It is included in MASM32v6 and if you don't have the help file, you can get it at, http://www.pbq.com.au/home/hutch/agner.htm Regards, firstname.lastname@example.org
