Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) & Their Applications

Speed performance for imaging, vision, signal, security, and storage applications.

  • Multicore, multiple operating system, and multiplatform ready, computationally intensive and highly optimized functions.
  • Plug in and use APIs to quickly improve application performance.
  • Reduced cost and time-to-market (TTM) on software development and maintenance.
  • Take advantage of Priority Support―connect privately with Intel engineers for technical questions.

Benchmarks

Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) offers performance benefits for both Intel® architecture improvements and new processor-specific optimizations.

  • Signal processing domain: Operations on 1D vectors of various data (DSP signals from apparatus, sound).
  • Image processing domain: Operations on 2D images and pictures. Various image filters, transforms similar to fast Fourier transforms (FFT), and image format conversions.
  • Cryptography domain: Cross-platform, cross-operating system programming interface for commonly used cryptographic operations, such as Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), RSA, and various hashes.
  • Data compression domain: Several popular data compression algorithms (such as ZLIB and BZIP) optimized for Intel architectures.

Signal Processing

This is a collection of low-overhead, high-performance signal processing functions. The most popular functionality includes signal filters, convolution, correlation, and 1-D FFT.

Image Processing

The image processing functionality is a major part of Intel IPP. All operations are done in 2D images. The most popular CPU-intensive functions are image resize, FFTs, and image filters.

Data Compression

Digital data compression, also known as lossless compression, is used in various applications to decrease the amount of data during data storage and network transfer operations. The data compression operation is quite time-consuming (CPU- and power-consuming). Intel IPP has a specialized domain of functions called Intel IPP DC domain to decrease CPU time required for these operations.

Intel’s compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice. Notice revision #20110804


 

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products.
