Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives Theory of Operation

This section discusses dispatching of the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) libraries to specific processors, provides functions and parameters naming conventions, and explains the data types on which Intel IPP performs operations. This section also provides Intel IPP domain details, including existing library dependencies by domain.

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.
