Comment 1 Barry K. Nathan 2004-11-19 17:33:31 UTC
Do you have any numbers to back this up? (Just wondering.)

On my Athlon XP, I tried recompiling Firefox as i686 rather than i386
and it didn't make any measurable difference (and this was on a web
page that takes Firefox over 10 minutes to render).

Comment 2 Barry K. Nathan 2004-11-19 17:36:57 UTC
Oops, I accidentally hit "commit" before I was done typing my
comment... Anyway, my point is that even for a CPU-intensive program,
recompiling as i686 may not make any noticeable difference. (The
default Red Hat compile options already specify Pentium 4 optimization
for i386 packages.)

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2009-10-21 15:48:02 UTC
Didn't get to do this before i686 became the default. :-(
