Codeplay released version 1.2 of their flagship VectorC compiler for the Win32 platform. VectorC 1.2 enhances the performance of version 1.1, and provides a compiler control system within the Microsoft Visual Studio environment that allows each part of a project to be tuned independently within the VectorC GUI.
Using VectorC, SIMD-optimized performance hotspots remain in C, optionally using "hints" that explain the code optimizations. As such, code is more portable to other platforms, easier to understand and can
be maintained better.
