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."

Except in most projects better hardware will be cheaper than one month salary for a top programmer.

Except in most cases today the program you write starts out at using 2% of total CPU and then you spend a month getting to 1.8% ...

Performance outside of Databases and Games and sometimes embedded systems and web server is mostly not relevant today.
