Including MPI Support

To specify the type of MPI support you want:
  1. Open the project's property pages and select
    Configuration Properties
    Intel Performance Libraries
  2. Set the property
    Use Intel MKL
  3. Set the property
    Use MPI Library
    to one of the following values:
    • Intel® MPI Library
    • MPICH2
    • MS-MPI
  4. Build the project.
The next time you build your project with the Intel® C++ Compiler or Microsoft Visual C++* compiler, it will include support for the version of MPI that you specified.

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.
