I wonder if the Intel compiler is still good on speeding the compiled code. I finally got Visual Studio 2017 Professional and decided to give it a go. I was using Express 2013 for years. First tests, CPU usage on Wusik EVE V5, on a test preset. 70%. Compiled with Visual Studio using all options I could find. Still around 70%. Installed the Intel 2019 compiler free version (seems to be the same as the paid version), still 70%. So I wonder if I should bother. OR, if I’m doing something wrong (most likely). I did turn the compiler on, I see it is using the intel compiler as some messages are different, and I did turn all optimizations I could find and added extra SSE optimizations too. No changes… Maybe I’m just tired and don’t see the problem, as I had to install everything TWICE in order to make it work… aghh…
Anyway, just wondering about this. Would appreciate any tips and hints.
