I have a Fortran code with openMP directives and would ideally like to compile for the new sandybridge processors. The code is a floating point intensive modelling code that would likely benefit from AVX.
Are the Sandybridge extensions incorporated within the current intel fortran compiler?
If yes can I simply select the processor that I want the code to be compiled for. I am happy with allowing the compiler to decide how to parallelise and or just use a few manually inserted omp directives.
I currently have VS2008 with: Intel Visual Fortran Compiler Integration Package ID: w_cprof_p_11.1.065
Thanks in advance!
