As TSX is a related new feature, and it is widely discussed in the research area. I am quite interested if there is any existing program apply TSX already? Hope someone can share this information with me.
Thanks very much,

TSX is enabled in the Intel/LLVM OpenMP runtime library, so you can request the use of a speculative lock by using a "synchronization hint" when you initialize an OpenMP lock. I gave a presentation about that on the OpenMP booth at SC18 (you can download the slides or watch the video at OpenMP SC18 Booth Talks). (If you want to look at the code, you can access the runtime library sources here ).
TSX is also supported by Threading Building Blocks (TBB) where there is a speculative spin mutex. The TBB source code is also available.
Of course, neither of those are stand-alone applications, but they make it much simpler for people to use TSX.
