I would recommend to take a look at
<http://www.amd.com/us-en/assets/content_type/white_papers_and_tech_docs/22007.pdf>
if you have not seen it before.  Although wtitten by AMD, many
recommendations apply to most modern CPUs.  I've found Chapter 3
particulary informative.  In fact I've changed my coding habits after
reading some of
their recommendations (for example "Use Array-Style Instead of
Pointer-Style Code").
