Performing Parallel Project Builds

Visual Studio* provides a parallel project build feature, allowing you to build multiple projects within a solution simultaneously, using separate threads. The Visual Studio* IDE initially sets the number of parallel project builds to equal the number of CPUs. To change this setting, do the following:
  1. Choose
    Projects and Solutions
  2. In the
    Build and Run
    property page, change the number in maximum number of parallel project builds and click
For more information on using this feature, see the Microsoft MSDN* documentation.

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.
