I understand most of the data (and I think it looks awesome!). But, there's one piece I don't understand. Each of these charts has a label above it that says something like: "maximum latency 158 µs in a total of 87.2 billion cycles." I get the maximum latency part. What do they mean by "87.2 billion cycles"?
On most of these CPUs, that'd be less than 2 minutes if they're measuring CPU cycles. That doesn't make any sense. Does anyone know the correct way to interpret that number?
