What collateral/documentation do you want to see?

Do you have questions that you are not finding the answers for in our documentation?  Need more training, source code examples, on what specifically?   Help us understand what's missing so that we can make sure we develop documentation you care about (what is important, and what is nice to have)!   Thank you

FAQS: Compilers, Libraries, Performance, Profiling and Optimization.

In the period prior to the launch of Intel® Xeon Phi™ coprocessor, Intel collected questions from developers who had been involved in pilot testing. This document contains some of the most common questions asked. Additional information and Best-Known-Methods for the Intel Xeon Phi coprocessor can be found here.

The Intel® Compiler reference guides can be found at:

Оптимизировали, оптимизировали, да не выоптимизировали!

Оптимизация? Конечно, каждый сталкивался с данной задачей при разработке своих, сколь-нибудь значительных, требующих определённых вычислений, приложений. При этом способов оптимизировать код существует огромное множество, и, как следствие, различных путей сделать это в автоматическом режиме с помощью опций компилятора. Вот здесь и возникает проблема – как выбрать то, что нужно нам и не запутаться?

Slides from May 4th Webinar on Cilk

Hi all,

We did a webinar this morning at 8am Pacific time on changes and new updates in Cilk in the Intel Parallel Composer beta. I am posting the slides here. Let me know if there's any interest to do another webinar on this around 5pm or so Pacific time - I want to see if there's anyone that couldn't attend due to the time that would have liked to attend. Thanks everyone, and I really enjoyed the questions in today's session.

Why is my AVX slower than SSE?

As the description of "IIR Gaussian Blur Filter Implementation using Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions",

The AVX should be faster than SSE,But, my result of performance measurement as following:

 The computer supports AVX
number CPU in the system = 4

 IIR Gaussian Filter Coefficients are:
a0 = 0.021175, a1 = -0.017807, a2 = 0.021103, a3 = -0.017875, b1 = -1.837578, b2
 = 0.844174, cprev = 0.510583, cnext = 0.489409

image width = 1024, height = 1024

see lots of warnings when compile Lib with MKL used


         I recently create and build a lib on window host with mkl lib function used, however, I see lots of weird warnings ,  can you tell me how to get rid of them, thanks a lot.  I included below mkl header files:

#include <mkl.h>
#include <mkl_dfti.h>

        I used mkl buffer allocate and free, fft etc functions, it reported like 8000 plus warning, I extracted part of them as below.
