hello, the new x86 open64 compiler suite sounds awesome. but sadly it's only for linux right now, is there a windows port planned?
We currently do not have plans for a Windows port for x86 Open64 on the roadmap However, we do want to understand from you if this is a requirement. What kind of applications/workloads do you run on Windows?
I think a Windows port of this compiler is necessary.
I've just test some computation intensive library, here I take the libsamplerate as example. MSVC output result is good, but not the best IMO. With SSE and /Qfast_transcendentals, the code should run 20% faster on Intel, but more than 20% slower on AMD! In contrast to the default parameters compilation.
The different micro-arch between AMD and Intel is always big problem. I believe that most benchmarks that show AMD are inferior should be challenged, if a AMD-favor compiler is presented.
Why AMD doesn't care Windows platform? That make no sense while considering its popularity.
I think a port that can incorporate with Visual Studio would be a good one. Since it's de-facto standard for windows development and there's a free edition available.
