Well you're wrong. If you multiply with a double precision constant value
(2.0), the multiplication is done in double precision and the result is
then converted to single precision, regardless of the optimize level. This
makes a big difference on hardware that only support single-precision in
hardware (I know this from experience, not assumptions).
