That was just about the only way I could make that function work on for intel compiler.

So even you did not use a plain .asm file.
I didn't say that you couldn't implement the same code without jumps
(though it is questionable it won't be slower), I was just saying that I
can't see how a solution using a standalone .asm would be comparable.
