Intel Performance Primitives (C++)

Intel® Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel® IPP) is an extensive library of software functions to help you develop data processing, and communications applications.

These ready-to-use, royalty-free functions are highly optimized using Intel® Streaming SIMD Extensions (Intel® SSE) and Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX, Intel® AVX2) instruction sets, which often outperform what an optimized compiler can produce alone.

Intel Math Kernel Library (C++, Fortran)

Accelerate application performance and reduce development time with the fastest and most used math library for Intel® and compatible processors. Harness the power of today’s processors—with increasing core counts, wider vector units, and more varied architectures. Includes highly vectorized and threaded linear algebra, fast Fourier Transforms, vector math, and statistics functions. Through a single API call, these functions automatically scale for future processor architectures by selecting the best code path for each.
