Intel TBB 3.0 builds on the past four years of Intel TBB by adding to the breadth and depth of features in the library, improving performance, and in the Windows* version utilizing the latest developments from Microsoft to support parallelism.
First, I will recap with a brief history of Intel TBB, skip this if you want to rush to the new features. And be sure to read about Adobe at the end of my blog.
History: Outfitting C++ for parallelism
After much hard work, extensive debate, prioritization, and efforts to eke out the last few percentages of performance gains, Intel® Threading Building Blocks (Intel® TBB) version 3.0 has arrived! With it come several new features and improvements, available now for download.
Today we released updates for our C++ and Fortran compilers, our Intel Math Kernel (MKL) and Intel Integrated Performance Primitives (IPP) libraries and Cluster toolkits. Noteworthy additions include outstanding performance enhancements, support of Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) and inclusion of some elements that debuted in Intel® Parallel Studio last month.
