  • [Media] I stumbled upon this when reading an ARM vs x86 comparison, and it made me giggle

    … but that's a problem surprisingly limited to C or 'find symbols by name'-land. Inside a Rust executable, there is no problem applying multiversion or manual alternatives to relevant methods that are actually in the hotpath, and thus executing them with a recent instruction set while being compatible at the same time. That's infinitely harder if you can't simply compile the function multiple times because it would lead to (undetected, dynamic) linker conflicts en-masse.

    Given your qualifications, optimizing the Huffman decoding in jpeg-decoder crate sounds like a good opportunity. 50% of the entire decoding time is spent there; any improvements in it would translate to significant performance gains for decoding JPEG images. The tracking issue is here: https://github.com/image-rs/jpeg-decoder/issues/155
