Resource Use

You may want to improve throughput first. However, you must also consider the use of resources (ALMs, DSPs, and so on) in your design when targeting FPGAs, for the following reasons:
  • To obtain a design to fit on an FPGA image.
  • To be able to use multiple copies of the design to increase throughput.
  • To make room for other functionality to be implemented in the same FPGA image.

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.
