This was not the case some ago and that's good news. Need to do some experiments and check the ISA generated. I think we should do it anyway (for now, at least). What is much more annoying is that bitselects on nvidia hurts performance (last time I checked). That is just weird. I mean, OK if they do not have a hardware instruction but they should definitely not end up slower than using the spelled out syntax. Or is it harder than I imagine? magnum
