x86/x64 Delphi, Lazarus, C#, and C++ Compared in Raw Computational power

As part of my research into the amount of effort it would take to invent a new Object Pascal compiler and language variant,  I decided to take some time to dig into the ASM code that gets generated when performing some really simple computations in Delphi and compare the speed of the operations. I then expanded my tests to include competing compilers.   Continue reading x86/x64 Delphi, Lazarus, C#, and C++ Compared in Raw Computational power
