They are great in performance but the problem is that the libraries designed and developed in native C language and could be used in unmanaged C/C++ programs. Today many of programmers used to program in managed language such as C#, Managed C++, ... in dot net platform. Using unmanged IPP and MKL libraries in Managed languages are so hard. I think designing and developing a managed object oriented Interface for these libraries would be great improvement that will bring easy to use performance gain for all new programmers.
