Using Intel® Performance Libraries with Microsoft Visual Studio*
You can use the Intel®
C++Compiler with the following Intel® Performance Libraries that may be included as a part of the product:
- Intel® Data Analytics Acceleration Library (Intel® DAAL)
- Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP)
- Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB)
- Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL)
Use the property pages to specify Intel® Performance Libraries to use with the selected project configuration.
The functionality supports both Intel® C++ and Microsoft Visual C++* project types.
To specify Intel® Performance Libraries, select. In
Configuration Properties, select
Intel Performance Libraries, then do the following:
- To useIntel® Data Analytics Acceleration Librarychange theUse Intel® DAALsettings as follows:
- No:Disable Use of Intel® DAAL.
- Default Linking Method:Use Intel® DAAL libraries that depend on the settings for the property.
- Multi-threaded Static Library:Use parallel static Intel® DAAL libraries.
- Single-threaded Static Library:Use parallel sequential static Intel® DAAL libraries.
- Multi-threaded DLL:Use parallel dynamic Intel® DAAL libraries.
- Single-threaded DLL:Use parallel sequential static Intel® DAAL libraries.
- To useIntel® Integrated Performance Primitives, change theUse Intel IPPsettings as follows:
- No:Disable use of Intel® IPP libraries.
- Default Linking Method:Use Intel® IPP libraries that depend on the settings for the property.
- Multi-threaded Static Library:Use parallel static Intel® IPP libraries.
- Single-threaded Static Library:Use parallel sequential static Intel® IPP libraries.
- Multi-threaded DLL:Use parallel dynamic Intel® IPP libraries.
- Single-threaded DLL:Use parallel sequential static Intel® IPP libraries.
- To useIntel® Threading Building Blocksin your project, change theUse Intel TBBsettings as follows:
- No:Disable use of Intel® TBB libraries.
- Use TBB:Set toYesto use Intel® Threading Building Blocks.
- Instrument for use with Intel® Threading Analysis Tools:Set toYesto add the preprocessor definitionTBB_USE_THREADING_TOOLSto the project property .TheTBB_USE_THREADING_TOOLSdefinition will be added only if the project property is set toMulti-threaded DLL (option.MD)
- To useIntel® Math Kernel Libraryin your project, change theUse Intel MKLproperty settings as follows:
If your target platform is set tox64, a final selection appears:Use ILP64 interfaces. If selected, the corresponding ilp MKL libraries is added to the linker command line. Additionally, the MKL_ILP64 preprocessor definition is added to the compiler command line. If you do not make this selection, lp MKL libraries are used.Sets of libraries for each option depend on selected target platform and project properties defined byand .
- No:Disable use of Intel® MKL libraries.
- Parallel:Use parallel Intel® MKL libraries.
- Sequential:Use sequential Intel® MKL libraries.
- Cluster:Use cluster Intel® MKL libraries.
Additional settings for use with the Microsoft Visual C++* Platform Toolset are available on the
Intel® Performance Librariescategory, found at .
The "Use Intel® MKL", "Use Intel® DAAL", "Use Intel® IPP", and "Use Intel® TBB" properties in Microsoft Visual Studio* mimic the behavior of the /Qmkl, /Qdaal, /Qipp and /Qtbb compiler options. The include and library paths to the performance library, which are installed with the selected Intel® C++ Compiler, are set up with these properties. To override this behavior refer to the article Usage of Intel® Performance Libraries with Intel® C++ Compiler in Visual Studio .
For more information, see the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives, Intel® Threading Building Blocks, and Intel® Math Kernel Library documentation.
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.
