Also there are rumours that Alpha performance is critically dependent
on the compiler used - i.e. the DEC compiler on Tru64 Unix (is that this
week's name ?) might give you 30% more performance than gcc.
I believe GCC sucks for most RISC architectures. I could be wrong, but
getting optimizing compilers for RISC is a complicated game, and I'd
be real surprised if GCC managed it.
I saw the same thing on the ARM platform years ago.
