Part 2: Automatic Vectorization and Array Notation


We will discuss automatic vectorization feature of the compilers, where it can be used, and how to diagnose it. But this discussion will cover only basic principles of automatic vectorization. Later in the course, in the next chapter actually, we will cover code optimization for vectorization.

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.
