Modder squeezed an additional 40% of performance from Skyrim

    In the forum thread, he says that Bethesda, in the process, does not use an optimizing compiler.

    Its optimizations are quite simple and cover about 1% of the entire engine code. This is mainly manual inlining of getters, rewriting some pieces of code from x87 to SSE2. Only three major features were patched. Modder claims that if Bethesda used an optimizing compiler and another library for the mat. Computations, the increase in speed would be 100%.
