Detailed Description


  • Letter from the Editor: The Performance Opportunity: How to Achieve it—from Clusters to Devices, by James Reinders
  • Help Future-Proof Performance of Your Application with Vectorization in Six Steps, by Wendy Doerner and Shannon Cepeda
    Vectorization is a key form of hardware support for data parallelism, allowing you to process data in parallel within a single CPU core. It can provide a significant performance boost, and also be combined with threading and/or cluster parallelism.
  • Pockets of Parallel Computation, Fitting in Your Pocket​, by Robert Mueller, Noah Clemons, and Paul Fischer
    Employing performance library functions in applications running on small form factor devices can be a great way to streamline and unify the computational execution flow for data-intensive tasks. This article examines the Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives landscape for the Intel Atom® processor.
  • Tools that Boost .NET Apps’ Reliability and Performance, by Levent Akyil and Asaf Yaffe
    Read about the capabilities of the latest software tools for developers of .NET* code, native code, and “mixed” (.NET and native) applications during the development cycle.

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.
