Welcome to the Lounge

   

For lazing about and discussing anything in a software developer's life that takes your fancy except programming questions.

Technical discussions are encouraged, but click here to ask your programming question.

The Lounge is rated PG. If you're about to post something you wouldn't want your kid sister to read then don't post it. No flame wars, no abusive conduct, no programming questions and please don't post ads.

However another side effect is that it also allows for more general purpose registers.

In order to claim there is an increase in speed with more registers would we not have to consider the bus line?


Randor wrote:
More registers essentially means that you can do more work

Not really. It actually depends on the instructions sets that are being used.


Randor wrote:
I would estimate an increase in performance of 15-25% (depending on the compiler optimizations) on this basis alone

This seems like pure conjecture to me. I honestly doubt there would be any performance increase unless the actual math of the ALU comes into play and the person is doing heavy math (like CAD manipulation etc.). But lets be honest, that is not what a phone is for.

Apple is slow losing market ground to the competition.

No disagreement there.
Computers have been intelligent for a long time now. It just so happens that the program writers are about as effective as a room full of monkeys trying to crank out a copy of Hamlet.
