Primitive vs. Variant Name

The
name
element identifies the algorithm or operation of the function. The low-level algorithm that function implements is a
primitive
. This algorithm often has several
variants
for different data types and implementation variations.
For example, the
CToC
modifier in the
ippsFFTInv_CToC_32fc
function signifies that the inverse fast Fourier transform operates on complex floating point data, performing the complex-to-complex (CToC) transform.

Product and Performance Information

1

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.
