User Guide



The following topics describe some key terms related to multithreaded parallel processing (parallelism), an overview of multithreaded parallelism, and common issues when adding multithreaded parallelism to your program:
  • If you are just learning about adding multithreaded parallel processing to application programs, please read these topics carefully.
  • If you have advanced knowledge about multithreaded parallel processing and are familiar with the concepts, quickly read (scan) these topics so you are familiar with the terms used.

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.
