Emulation tutorial?

Emulation tutorial?

I was wondering if there are any tutorials or tips you can offer on using the emulator? What's the workflow for using this to model AVX? How accurate is it compared to actual AVX performance?

Thanks

For more complete information about compiler optimizations, see our Optimization Notice.

you can use SDE to emulate AVX instructions on current HW. it can be downloaded from http://software.intel.com/en-us/avx

it is very easy to use command line. install it and goto sde folder.
you can run your program as

Emulator does not emulate performance model. it is more for functional correctness.

Thanks for your help. Yes, I think the functional correctness is the most important aspect of the emulation. The real performance we can see later.
