Well i was going to mention, sometimes the opposite can be the case, for instance if you know your data set is very small. Most quick sort implementations revert to a simpler algorithm such as Insertion Sort when the range becomes small enough.

Never said otherwise.

If it is really vital that you meet a particular speed target, maybe you really have to consider Asm. I am certainly not knocking your own decision to do so.

But if i went to my boss and said "can i do this in asm please?" i know his reply already... "lol, nope"
