not a beautiful or unique snowflake

I just posted a comment explaining the source of most of the speed of my real-time ray-tracer. It is, of course, super-technical.

As a fun experiment, if you find the discussion interesting yet incomprehensible, feel free to post comments like "what is 4-way SIMD?" and I'll post a comment trying to describe it as clearly as possible. But I might use some more jargon needing explaining, so feel free to ask, and I will repeat this as many times as necessary, even if it takes hundreds of comments to explain everything, because, as I said, it would be a fun experiment.
