Benchmarks "During the 4th Semester of my studies I wrote a small 3d spaceship deathmatch shooter with the D-Programming language. It was created within 3 Months time and allows multiple players to play deathmatch over local area network. All of the code was written with a garbage collector in mind and made wide usage of the D standard library phobos. After the project was finished I noticed how much time is spend every frame for garbage collection, so I decided to create a version of the game which does not use a GC, to improve performance."

The only question is to build an ad-hoc garbage collector or use the general-purpose collector from your favorite language.


Why would you build your own GC instead of improving your allocation mechanisms in manually managed memory? I consider the latter far simpler.
