Hi, Would like to ask a question on running intel IPP 7.1 on machines with intel AVX instruction extension. We are trying to get a intel Xenon E5 series processor(with intel AVX instruction set extension) for our project. However, due to legacy issues, we have to adopt Windows XP as our OS. Understand that in order to utilise intel AVX instruction sets, we would need to have Windows 7 SP1 as the OS. Would we still be able to utilise intel IPP7.1 (can the processor default to older SSE version)? What is the type of shortcomings or performance hit(or maybe workaround) if I would to do so? Likewise I would require advice if in such a situation, would it be better to adopt an older version of the IPP library? Thanks in advance
