Document Table of Contents Evaluate Optimization Results

After checking what optimizations were done and how they improved performance, evaluate the runtime it took to get the extra performance. To reduce compilation time, review the physical synthesis and netlist optimizations over a couple of compilations, and edit the RTL to reflect the changes that physical synthesis performed. If a particular set of registers consistently get retimed, edit the RTL to retime the registers the same way. If the changes are made to match what the physical synthesis algorithms did, the physical synthesis options can be turned off to save compile time while getting the same type of performance improvement.
