Optimize for AVX-512 with or without AVX-512 hardware

  • Overview

Optimizing vectorization becomes increasingly important as new technology like AVX-512 becomes available. Software must be both efficiently threaded and efficiently vectorized to fully utilize modern hardware.

Get an overview of what changes with AVX-512 and learn how Intel® Advisor 2017 can help you optimize for both AVX-512 and older instruction sets both with and without access to the latest hardware. See how to get accurate repeatable FLOPS metrics, measure the loop footprint to see if it fits into cache, detect unneeded gather/scatters that reduce performance and much more.

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.

Hi, would it be possible to get the slide deck as well for this talk?
