Intel MKL 10.2 Update 2 is now available

Intel MKL 10.2 Update 2 is now available. This full Intel MKL package includes the following features:

  • Performance improvements

    • Many improvements in BLAS functions for Intel Core i7 processors, and Intel Xeon processor 5300, 5400, and 5500 series
    • Improved scalability of the following LAPACK functions: ?POTRF, ?GEBRD, ?SYTRD, ?HETRD, and ?STEDC divide and conquer eigensolvers
    • PARDISO OOC performance has improved significantly for symmetric positive definite matrices
    • Improved performance for the double precision Sobol generator for dimensions >= 16
    • Improvements in many VML functions for Intel Xeon processor 5500 series and others: v(s,d)Pow, v(s,d)Ceil/Trunc/Floor, vsSin/Cos/SinCos, and vdSin/Cos/SinCos
    • Improved scalability of 1D, single precision, complex FFTs and improved performance for small 3D transforms
  • Usability/Interface improvements
    • Support for 64-bit integer parameters in FFTW wrappers
    • Intel MKL is now compatible with the representation of logical values in GCC 4.4.0
    • All transpose functions now have a Fortran interface
  • Bug fixes

For further information on these features see the New in Intel MKL 10.2 knowledgebase article.

Hello.
We develop engineering software (finite element libraries/applications) for the .NET platform (C#).

We are considering the option to adopt Intel Math Kernel Library in our projects, so I would like to ask you two questions:

1. How easy it is to adopt MKL in our .NET project - do you provide support for managed software?

2. If we purchase MKL for Windows, can we distribute the MKL dlls along with our dlls, or should we have any extra runtime/royalty fees.

Yiannis,
1. please see here some discussion for your reference about using Intel MKL in your C# program:

2. you can distribute the MKL dlls with yours without any extra runtime/royalty fees
