Fast implementation accurate

Quality Example
Faster fast

"My question is is fast implementation of pow x 0.5f faster than fast sqrt x"

from question "Is fast implementation of pow(x, 0.5f) faster than fast sqrt(x)?"

More accurate

"First of all sqrt x should be faster and more accurate than pow x 0.5 why do you think it s in the library"

from question "Different results on using sqrt() and pow() functions"


Quality Example

"And as tom karzes mentioned sqrt is also better than using pow for calculating square roots"

from question "Programming in C, Using pow function"
