Intel® Math Kernel Library (Intel® MKL) 11.2 includes support for the latest 32-bit and 64-bit Intel® Atom™ processors.
Intel® Atom™ processors supporting Supplemental Streaming SIMD Extensions 3 (Intel® SSSE3), Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 4.1 (Intel® SSE4.1) or Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions 4.2 (Intel® SSE4.2) instruction sets will run out-of-the-box with Intel® MKL. Intel® MKL’s internal dispatching mechanism identifies which instruction sets the Intel® Atom™ processor supports and automatically selects the optimal code path to execute during run time.
The latest Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family includes a feature called Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX), which can potentially improve application performance. Here we will explain the context, and provide an example of how using Intel® AVX improved performance for a commonly known benchmark.
For existing vectorized code that uses floating point operations, you can gain a potential performance boost when running on newer platforms such as the Intel® Xeon® processor E7 v2 family, by doing one of the following:
