Effective Parallel Optimizations with the Intel® Fortran Compiler


The SIMD and multi-core features of modern processors enable large improvements in application performance―but only if the application is effectively optimized for parallel execution. The Intel® Fortran Compiler provides multiple ways to achieve this, from automatic vectorization to explicit SIMD programming and from assisted auto-parallelism to threading with OpenMP*. We’ll discuss the pros and cons of the different approaches, providing with advice and examples interpreted using the compiler’s optimization reports.
