Building the Netlib HPL from Source Code

The source code for Intel® Distribution for LINPACK* Benchmark is not provided. However, you can download reference Netlib HPL source code from http://www.netlib.org/benchmark/hpl/ . To build the HPL:
  1. Download and extract the source code.
  2. Copy the makefile
    <mkl directory>
    \benchmarks\mp_linpack\Make.Windows_Intel64
    to your HPL directory
  3. Edit
    Make.Windows_Intel64
    as appropriate
  4. Build the HPL binary:
    $> nmake -f Make.Windows_Intel64
  5. Check that the built binary is available in the current directory.
The Intel® Distribution for LINPACK Benchmark may contain additional optimizations compared to the reference Netlib HPL implementation.
