C omputers perennially become more powerful, as do the software applications that run on them, and it seems almost human nature to want the biggest and fastest toy we can afford. But how do you know if it is? Even if your application never does any I/O, it’s not just the speed of the CPU that dictates performance—cache, main memory, and compilers also play a role—and different software applications have differing performance requirements. And whom do you trust to provide this information? The… CONTINUE READING
