Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP)

Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP)

Extensive software library for media and data processing

  • Get top performance: pre-optimized building blocks perform faster
  • Cross-platform - supports multiple operating systems

A Library of Highly Optimized Algorithmic Building Blocks for Media and Data Applications

Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) is an extensive library of software functions to help you develop multimedia, data processing, and communications applications. These ready-to-use, royalty-free functions are highly optimized using Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions (Intel® SSE) and Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX) instruction sets, which often outperform what an optimized compiler can produce alone.

  • Performance Building - Optimized building blocks perform faster
  • Time to Market - Intel engineering saves you development, debug and maintenance time so you can focus on new features to differentiate your application - the code you write today will run optimally on future generations of Intel processors
  • Cross Platform - Supports Windows*, Linux*, Android* and OS X* environments

What's New in Intel IPP 8.2 Update 1

  • Added additional optimization for the newest Intel® Atom™ and 4th generation Intel® Core™ processors.
  • Corrected a number of issues in the previous release and detected later internal and external defects. In particular, we fixed the issue 'Flavors of Pyramid functions that operate on 16-bit data overflow on some images and produce incorrect results'.
  • No changes are made to the functions API and libraries content to maintain binary compatibility with the previous major release.

See the Intel IPP forum for more details on this and the Intel IPP 8.2 release. 

Features and Benefits

Feature Benefit
OS X* Standalone SKU Applications that use read-write locks can take additional advantage of  Intel® Transactional Syncronization Extenstions (Intel® TSX) via tbb::speculative_spin_rw_mutex
Pre-Optimized for Performance, Throughput, & Power Efficiency
  • Functions are highly optimized using SSE and Intel® AVX instruction sets enabling your compute heavy algorithms to achieve maximum performance, beyond what an optimized compiler could produce alone.
  • See above for detailed performance data.
Future Proofed Optimizations Enables you to code once now and then in the future – simply rebuild with the latest version of Intel IPP to realize future processor and instruction set performance gains. This future proofing saves you both time and money on application development.
Royalty-free Redistribution Allows you to redistribute unlimited copies of its runtime libraries with your application, saving you money long term.
Thousands of Pre-defined Functions Speeds your application development letting you focus on differentiating your application, not algorithmic optimization.
Samples Jumpstart your Application Take advantage of source code samples.
