The effects of the compiler cannot be as good as hand-tuned code most of the time, but it's pretty darn good. And developers will have making better than what the compiler does.
Disabling the compiler seems like BS though. It's still on, or their scores would be even significantly lower.
Uttar.. Everyone has a "compiler". So obviously its real. But you know as well as I do that that is not whats happening here nor is that what is bringing the big FPS increases in the well known Benchmark games like HALO. The "Optomizer" should work without Application detection and thats all there is to it.
