For the one where the omp_get_thread_num() call was in the unicode getter/setter, omp_get_thread_num() was being called at least 11520 times per each 5760 candidates!!!! That could be GREATLY reduced (basically a loop-invariant code motion). But using the 2nd method (newest), it simply is an inline function to a array. So a smart compiler will actually do the loop invariant motion for us. A very similar problem can be seen with OpenCL: On nvidia you should call get_global_id() only once and put the result in a register, otherwise you'll get a performance hit. On AMD, the compiler does this for you. Sometimes the optimizers do really astonishing things, sometimes they, well, don't. magnum
