Well, it's clear that valarray implements some Expression Templates to
optimizes it evaluations.
But beware, few compilers nowadays are able to automagically turn scalar
code into
proper, optimized SIMD code (or, again, I'll be pleased to be introduced
to one).

Automatic vectorization - like automatic parallelisation in general - is
still in its infancy and largely academic.
