General Development Here's something you probably don't know, but really should - especially if you're a programmer, and especially especially if you're using Intel's compiler. It's a fact that's not widely known, but Intel's compiler deliberately and knowingly cripples performance for non-Intel (AMD/VIA) processors.

It shouldn't be though I suspect Intel would claim it was trademark or copyright infringement or perhaps fraud. So long as AMD, Via or whoever was clear they did so to the customer and/or allowed them to toggle the 'feature' it should be allowed.
