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.
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.
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.
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
