Introduction to the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives Library

Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) is an extensive library of software functions to help you develop multimedia, data processing, and communications applications. These ready-to-use functions are highly optimized using Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions (Intel® SSE) and Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) instruction sets.
Intel IPP supports application development for various Intel® architectures. By providing a single cross-architecture application programmer interface, Intel IPP permits software application repurposing and enables porting to unique features across Intel® processor-based desktop, server, mobile, and handheld platforms. Use of the Intel IPP primitive functions can help drastically reduce development costs and accelerate time-to-market by eliminating the need of writing processor-specific code for computation intensive routines.
One key area of the Intel IPP library is image processing, which includes various operations on two-dimensional signals like filtering, geometric transforms, color conversion, and morphological transforms.
Optimization Notice
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.
