From Serial to Awesome, part 2: Advanced Code Vectorization and Optimization

  • Overview

The previous webinar gave examples of simply-structured loops that could be auto-vectorized using the Intel® Compiler. In this webinar, we'll look at more complex loops that can still be vectorized, such as search loops and loops containing indirect addressing (gathers and scatters), valarrays, and function calls. This will include both auto-vectorization and explicit vector programming using the SIMD features of OpenMP* 4.0. Code samples will include C, C++, and Fortran* and will be available for subsequent download.

Benchmark results were obtained prior to the implementation of recent software patches and firmware updates intended to address exploits referred to as "Spectre" and "Meltdown". Implementation of these updates may make these results inapplicable to your device or system.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more information, see Performance Benchmark Test Disclosure.
