As indicated a few weeks back, my first step was to enhance all of the existing floating point opcodes to emit SSE instructions whenever the enhancement is turned on. This optimization, like all others in Mono, is gated both by...

My proposal to work on the Mono runtime was accepted for the Google Summer of Code program, so I'll be spending some time on that this summer. The project involves modifying the x86 JIT to use SSE for floating point operations, as opposed to the x87 FP stack that it's using now. The use of SSE registers is much cleaner and faster than using the FP...
