of the original sequence, p-values

are computed. For a subsequence
u
(

n

,
u
(

n

ujn
 the test
j
fails if the value
pj
falls outside the interval (
p
l
,
ph
) ⊂ (0, 1). The sequence
u
1
,
u
2
, ...,
uKn
is considered suspicious when
r
or more test iterations failed.
Threshold testing for the VS generators was done with the following variable settings:
  1. ten iterations (
    K
    =10)
  2. the interval (
    p
    l
    ,
    ph
    ) equal to (0.05, 0.95)
  3. r
    = 5.
The chance to reject a 'good' sequence in this case is 0.16349374% ≅ 0.2%.

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 reserverd 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.
