Codeplay, provider of high performance game development tools, has
released version 1.2 of the Win32 version of their flagship VectorC
compiler. VectorC allows games to be faster and with more features
than previously possible.

  VectorC 1.2 enhances the already impressive performance that v1.1
could extract from standard C code. The 1.2 update also provides a
compiler control system within the Microsoft Visual Studio environment
that allows each part of a project to be tuned independently within an
easy to use intuitive GUI.

VectorC exploits the ability of the latest microprocessors to perform
multiple operations in parallel. The new SIMD (single instruction,
multiple data) instructions enable a large boost in processing power,
however taking advantage of them (vectorizing) is a time consuming
process which has so far required the deployment of complex assembly
language programming.
