But with that, then we should technically all be programming in assembly then. Find your target machines instruction set and let's program using that.

When C came out it was considered a high level language. You would use C but never for anything that mattered in speed. In time that turned. Same with C++ when it came out.

There are PLENTY of systems you use every day that have great performance but are using high level languages such as Python, C#, and more.

The thought that a high level language can't make code that is optimized is old and should be thrown away in my mind.
