We will describe, with C and Fortran examples, new opportunities for performance-enhancing vectorization provided by the Intel® AVX-512 instruction set on the processor code named Knights Landing. After an introduction, this will include vectorization of loops that compress or expand arrays; histogram loops; and loops with array of structures accesses. Small sample codes will be available for 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.
