Tips and techniques on using the Intel® Compilers to maximize your application performance.
Vectorization is one of many optimizations that are enabled by default in the latest Intel compilers. In order to be vectorized, loops must obey certain conditions, listed below. Some additional ways to help the compiler to vectorize loops are described.
Which applications are most likely to benefit from recompilation for Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX)?Applications containing vectorizable, floating-point loops or calls to performance libraries are the most likely to see significant performance gains from rebuilding for the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX)
