Slightly off-topic, but how did Intel's 9.1 compiler fair (win and/or
We've found it better for vectorisation, but may be about to embark on using
fusion et al so wondered if you'd done any small object/inlining/templating
tests with that too.
I've often thought having some performance tests on the regression suite
would be good, but I can see it being problematic to factor out different
user's and different CPUs et al.
