Optimizing your binaries with the VC++ compiler for optimum performance (Feedback Requested)

There are several reasons to program in C++, and one of the most important ones is the incredible performance that one can obtain. 

There are a set of optimizations that the Microsoft Visual C++ compiler offers to perform on your binaries to yield the best performance for your application on varying hardware (for e.g. via compiler switches such as /O2, Profile-Guided Optimization (PGO) and Link-Time Code Generation (LTCG) etc.). 

We are reaching out to you to get your feedback on the optimizations the compiler offers today and other potential optimizations that we can introduce to help get better performance from your application.

Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. Your answers to this survey will help us make the right investments for future releases of Visual Studio. Completing this questionnaire should take about 20
minutes to finish. 

Thanks in advance for taking the time! 

Thanks,

Code Generation and Optimization team
