Which is faster?

Recommended Posts

well you can either go with heavily optimized routines for specific hardware developed by a big company probably even get your GPU to do the work for you in some cases or you could write a crummy version yourself in C.

One of them is going to be compatible, mostly bugfree and fast.

I'll let you figure out the rest yourself :)

Thanks guys :) I just read in another post before that it was faster to code them yourself but I thought,"Who could program them better than the inventors of d3d?". So I had to ask :)
Ciao,

D3DX will usually be faster because it makes use of extended CPU instruction sets like 3DNow! and SIMD.
SIMD isn't an instruction set =) Unless you meant 3DNow was a SIMD instruction set, which it (sort of) is. <offtopic>Interesting but semi-old read</offtopic>
I know what I mean :P

Factoid: Microsoft bought the first version of DirectX from a bunch of university students when they figured out how to acces the HAL through Win95.
