What Have I Learned? – Einstein and the Ultimate Limits for Loop Performance

With all of the advanced algorithms and smart instrumentation available today, we can sometime lose sight of what are the real limits to loop performance. While it doesn’t take an Einstein to figure this out, as a former physicist, I found an interesting analogy. Einstein’s reasoning that nothing can travel faster than the speed of …
