Basic Frequency Considerations

Device performance can be affected by dynamic frequency scaling. For example, running long kernels on both devices simultaneously might eventually result in one or both devices stopping use of the Intel® Turbo Boost Technology. This might result in overall performance decrease even in compare to single-device scenario.
Similarly, in the single (Intel® Graphics) device scenario, a high interrupt rate and frequent synchronization with the host can raise the frequency of the CPU and drag the frequency of Intel® Graphics down. Using in-order queues can mitigate this.

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.
