Changes to the routine CGETRS between MKL 11.1.3 and MKL 11.3.3

Hi,

After an upgrade from MKL 11.1.3 to MKL 11.3.3 I suspect that the mkl routine CGETRS gives slightly different results. This sounds very strange (since I believe it just forwards the calculation to LAPACK), so I wanted to ask here if there has been any change to the implementation between these MKL versions before I dig deeper into the issue?

Best,
Jens

Hi Jens,

Could you please attach a screenshot of this difference or provided your sample code with calculation, I could tested on different version of MKL to see if this problem remains. Thank you so much.

Best regards,
Fiona

Hi,

This turned out to be something unrelated to the abovementioned routine. The compiler update caused a roundoff-level difference (as expected) in some single-precision floating-point code, which through some other sensitive code led to a slighly different input to CGETRS which again gave a slightly (but correct) different output. The sensitive part of the code has been fixed now.

Best and thanks,
Jens
