2:16:00yurasniper Q: Logical || and && are short-circuited, so they will always have a jump, unless compiler can figure out some property that will allow it to collapse the expression. So to avoid jumps one should use bitwise | and & if possible. But also there were some people saying that cmov is worse than a jump over a few instructions. I think LLVM people, but I may be wrong

2:25:47isfoo Q: MSVC is very often not optimizing away obvious things (basically you cannot do so-called zero cost abstractions with it). For example it always does short circuiting.8 Or from experience, I also remember it sometimes calling empty constructors. Why not use some reasonable compiler like clang / gcc / icc?

2:32:00internationalizationist Q: Is it possible to not call VirtualAlloc at all? You can create global array of bytes of whatever size you want and point Persistent / Transient storages to those arrays. Global storage should go to BSS (is it?), and the operating system must allocate enough memory at startup time (and you already allocated a determined amount of space (so you know how much it is at compile time))
