Performance Tools for Software Developers - SSE generation and processor-specific optimizations continuedCan I combine the processor values and target more than one processor? How to generate optimized code for both Intel and AMD* architecture? Where can I find more information on processor-specific optimizations?
The introduction of the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor includes Intel® Advanced Vector Extension (Intel® AVX). Intel AVX is a new 256-bit instruction set extension to Intel® SSE. This article describes a simple methodology to utilize Intel AVX.
