Intel® Threading Building Blocks Celebrates 10 Years!

By Sally Sams, Published: 06/22/2016, Last Updated: 06/22/2016

The new special issue of The Parallel Universe magazine celebrates the 10th anniversary of what some have called the most important new addition to parallel programming in the last decade: Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB).

Intel® TBB is a widely used, award-winning C++ library for creating high-performance, scalable parallel applications. It includes a rich set of components to efficiently implement higher-level, task-based parallelism and is compatible with multiple compilers and portable to various operating systems.

In this don’t-miss special issue, you’ll learn how this important tool suite came to be, what it’s done for parallel programing, and where it’s going in the future. You’ll also get the inside view from the experts who’ve helped develop Intel TBB over the years.

Join the celebration!

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
