What's New in Intel MKL 10.3 update 11

  • BLAS: Improved Level 1 BLAS on 32-bit Microsoft Windows XP* for Intel Xeon processor 5400 series (Harpertown)
  • LAPACK: Introduced support for LAPACK version 3.4.1
  • FFT: Added additional optimization for AVX/AVX2 which gives significant performance improvement for complex-to-complex FFTs of sizes 8, 12, 14, 21, and 96
  • VSL: Improved performance of viRngGeometric on Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (AVX)
  • mklvars.* script no longer set $FPATH in environment and internal variable MKL_TARGET_ARCH will not be exported. This change will not impact users as the Intel compiler no longer requires the $FPATH variable
  • Bug fixes
