By the way, here's a "real world" example of the performance benefits to
using the Intel compiler on a "real" program which doesn't seem an obvious
beneficiary from Pentium 4 optimisation:
These are serious gains, people.
It's like cranking up the clockspeed from 3GHz to 3.6-4.2GHz for just one
additional line in your configure command. [*]
If you're tired of CPUs which give nuclear reactors a run for the thermal
dissipation money and false economies of "cheaper" CPUs, I think you'll be
very pleasantly surprised by 800FSB P4 performance.
[*] Intel C Compiler is free to download and use but you cannot ship a
commercial product built with it without paying for a licence.
