Hi,

i don't find any message talking about optimizing Mac Intel App.

Is not possible? or isn't appreciable?

Thanks

They're as optimized as I can make them. I think other people have tried and haven't had any success getting them faster.

If someone had the intel compiler for OS X they might be able to do better, but no one has tried that yet.

If we could only draw Alex Kan out of retirement(most likely working a full time job), he could probably write one heck of an app.

Only other person I know would be Crunch3r.

The code is about as optimized as it can possibly be. The only thing that can really speed it now is different compiler optimizations or digging into assembly language.

For Mac PPC/Intel. Anyone have it tried?

I run it on my iMac, not all that much of a boost though.

Most of my RAC is coming from the 4830 in my quad.
