One Solution for Multiple Environments
Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) optimizes code with minimal effort for future generations of Intel® processors. It is compatible with your choice of compilers, languages, operating systems, and linking and threading models.
- Features highly optimized, threaded, and vectorized math functions that maximize performance on each processor family
- Uses industry-standard C and Fortran APIs for compatibility with popular BLAS, LAPACK, and FFTW functions—no code changes required
- Dispatches optimized code for each processor automatically without the need to branch code
- Provides Priority Support that connects you directly to Intel engineers for confidential answers to technical questions
- Improved small matrix multiplication performance in GEMM and LAPACK
- Enhanced ScaLAPACK performance for distributed computation
- 24 new vector math functions
- Simplified license for easier adoption and redistribution
- Additional distributions via YUM, APT-GET, and conda*
