JPEG APIs are implemented using new threading model in IPP 7.0 and later
This page offers the list of Intel IPP functions specially optimized for Intel AVX.
The compiler supports many options that tune or optimize an application for different Intel and non-Intel processors. Differences are explained, and the switches /arch, /Qx..., /Qax... (Windows*) and -m, -x..., -ax... (Linux*, Mac OS* X) are recommended.
The STREAM component of the HPCC benchmark suite runs more slowly with the initial release of the 11.0 compiler compared to version 10.1. This can be worked around by disabling function inlining. The COPY component showed a similar issue in 12.0.
Manual cpu dispatch may be used to write code that will be executed only on Intel processors with support for Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions, such as 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processors (formerly code named “Sandy Bridge”), 3rd generation Intel® Core™ processors (formerly code named "Ivy Bridge") or future processors with support for Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 2..
Guided Auto-Parallel - compiler feature providing guidance to user on what changes are necessary for the compiler to automatically add vectorization or parallelization to serial application.
