How PM Atom builds are build?

Post by jeikobu614 » 2016-03-23, 17:38

Hi :)

As I have Atom processor which supports x64 system, i am interested to build PM for my self, but how can i build it for my processor? Are they some special tweaks, or they are only some CFlags in configs? Or maybe it's even not worth it? Are they some benchmarks between PM Atom and normal PM?

On Linux there's likely less of a difference for these builds.

It's a combination of using the Atom source branch and specific compilation flags.

Specifically for Linux, the -march=atom CFLAG is used.

Hi Moonchild :)

But is there specific source for Atom? I only find source for Pale Moon

If the machine you're compiling on is using an Atom processor, then it should.
