So, the title is deliberately controversial, but the real point of the article is that modern CPU's, particularly x86 CPU's, are so far removed from the x86 machine model that even when you are looking at the assembler code, you really have no idea about how it will be executed. I have this discussion all the time with C developers who think that with C they know with certainty what the machine will do. What they really mean is they know what the assembly will look like, which is really not a lot of anything.

Your optimizations are the same as you make with other high level languages: minimize dependencies, allow for as much reordering and concurrent execution of logic as possible, try to pay attention to cache lines and memory access patterns (though cache-oblivious designs are a much better choice than cache-aware designs, because the rules are constantly changing), and most importantly, stop believing you really know what the execution is going to look like.

Of course, if you learn a lot about how a given x86 processor translates x86 instructions in to the processor's internal instruction set, maybe you can pretend that x86 is a lot like what people think C is.... ;-)
Just so you know, x86 machine-code is now a "high-level" language. What instructions say, and what they do, are very different things. I mention this because of those commenting on this post on OpenSSL's "constant-time" calcu...

We know that the Australians and the United kingdom have had all their rights to self protection removed.  Look up the regulations for pocket knives in the Uk.
