similar to the cocoa books thread, can anybody suggest a good tutorial for learning how to optimize for Altivec? Are there any free vector optimizing compilers (eg preprocessors to optimize completely non-vector code ala VAST)?
so far I’ve found (but haven’t started seriously reading)
and numerous PDFs at those sites.
I’m going to be writing some scientific code that should be highly vectorizeable.
All statements are to be taken with a grain of salt
