Martin, how can this be?  If your manually written assembly code is
optimal, no program can provide better code.  Otherwise you should
revise your assembly code.

Many developers claim that their software is the fastest the world has

convince me, come up with numbers.  All the advertizing is meaningless
without numbers.
