Hi,

Benoit, Gael, could you confirm that this change is intentional? Pro: improves perf of certain 4d ops Con: - regresses perf of 4f ops, as now Vector4f isn't aligned anymore!!!! - breaks long-standing invariant that Eigen ABI is independent of compile flags Benoit 2015-01-27 18:22 GMT-05:00 Benoit Jacob <jacob.benoit.1@xxxxxxxxx>:Ouch... you're right. From Macros.h: #if defined(__AVX__) #undef EIGEN_ALIGN_BYTES #define EIGEN_ALIGN_BYTES 32 #endif 2015-01-27 18:19 GMT-05:00 Benoit Jacob <jacob.benoit.1@xxxxxxxxx>: Oh --- I was still living in a world where the Eigen ABI is unaffected byvectorization, which was the case at least until AVX. Is alignof(Vector4d) actually 32 with AVX by default? So ABI is now dependent on compile flags?

So I am not sure how you intend to "pass around Eigen objects". -- Marc Glisse
