SESSION + Live Q&A Performance

Understanding CPU Microarchitecture to Increase Performance

Microprocessors have evolved over decades to eke out performance from existing code. But the microarchitecture of the CPU leaks into the assumptions of a flat memory model, with the result that equivalent code can run significantly faster by working with, rather than fighting against, the...
