Benchmarks In continuing with my articles exploring the my SPARC-based Sun Ultra 5, I'm going to cover the topic of compiler optimizations on the SPARC platform. While many are familiar with GCC compiler optimizations for the x86 platform, there are naturally differences for GCC on SPARC, and some platform-specific issues to keep in mind.

1. Why aren't you writing for one of the hardware sites? You do nice work.

2. Can you do a series like this for x86?

Thanks for an extremely interesting article, even though I have never touched a sparc in my life. You prove that optimizations do matter, in spite of those who say they make no difference.
