Our optimization technology has been successfully implemented for all of the DEC's Alpha Axp RISC processors: 064, 164 and 264.
Click here to see examples of the Alpha code optimizations.

The following table lists results of optimizations achieved by the 064/164 version of the optimizer:

All benchmarks are generated using DECs C compiler, ver 83.0.
All results were obtained by calling ago with certain parameters. Other parameter settings could result in even better improvements.

 

The following are results of optimizations achieved by the 264 version of the optimizer:

All benchmarks are generated using GNU C compiler, ver 2.51.
All results were obtained by calling ago with certain parameters. Other parameter settings could result in even better improvements.
