As far as I know, C# code optimization is reduced to the general code optimization common for CLI. Apparently, it depends on the version of CLI. Please see:
http://www.drdobbs.com/net-code-optimization/184416840[^].

This is an interesting CodeProject article on JIT optimization: JIT Optimizations[^].

Solution 2

There are two C# compiler switches that impact code optimization: /optimize and /debug.
The following will shows the imapact these switches have on the quality of the IL Code generated by the C# compiler and the quality of the native code generated by the JIT compiler

Compiler Switch Settings : Description
--------------------------------------
/optimize- /debug- : "C# IL code Quality" is UnOptimized and "JIT Native Code Quality" is optimized.

/optimize- /debug(+/full/pdbonly) : "C# IL code Quality" is UnOptimized and "JIT Native Code Quality" is Unoptimized.

/optimize+ /debug(-/+/full/pdbonly): "C# IL code Quality" is Optimized and "JIT Native Code Quality" is optimized.
