Intel Math Kernel Library (Intel MKL) is a highly optimized, extensively threaded, and thread-safe library of mathematical functions for engineering, scientific, and financial applications that require maximum performance. The Intel MKL 10.3 libraries are now ready for download. Intel MKL is available as a stand-alone product and as a part of the Intel Parallel Studio XE 2011, Intel C++ Studio XE 2011, Intel Composer XE 2011, Intel Visual Fortran Composer XE 2011, Intel C++ Composer XE 2011, and Intel Cluster Studio 2011. Please visit the Intel Software Evaluation Center to evaluate this product.
The new Intel MKL 10.3 release provides the following:
- BLAS: New matrix-vector BLAS functions, Intel AVX optimizations
- LAPACK: New C interfaces for LAPACK, integrated Netlib LAPACK 3.2.2, Intel AVX optimizations
- PARDISO: Improved performance scaling, support for zero-based array indexing, and more...
- Sparse BLAS: Extended data format conversion functions.
- FFTs: New MPI FFTW 3.3alpha1 wrappers, improved load-balancing of cluster FFTs, Intel AVX optimizations, split-complex data support, Hybrid parallelism (MPI + OpenMP*), and more...
- VML: A new function for computing (ax+b)/(cy+d), Intel AVX optimizations, and more...
- VSL: A set of new Summary Statistics functions was added covering basic statistics, covariance and correlation, pooled, group, partial, and robust covariance/correlation, quantiles and streaming quantiles, outliers detection algorithm, and missing values support
- VSL: Improved performance of SFMT19937 Basic Random Number Generator, Intel AVX optimizations
- Added runtime dispatching dynamic libraries with single static interface
- A new directory structure has been established to simplify integration of Intel MKL with the Intel Parallel Studio XE family of products and directories formerly designated as "em64t" are now designated by the "intel64" tag
- Intel Itanium architecture (IA-64) support is not included in this release. Intel MKL 10.2 is the latest release for IA-64
- The sparse solver functionality has been fully integrated into the core Intel MKL libraries and the libraries with "solver" in the filename have been removed from the product
