Intel MKL 10.3 update 5 is now available


Intel Math Kernel Library (Intel MKL) is a highly optimized, extensively threaded, and thread-safe library of mathematical functions for engineering, scientific, and financial applications that require maximum performance. The Intel MKL 10.3 Update 5 packages are now ready for download. Intel MKL is available as a stand-alone product and as a part of the Intel Parallel Studio XE 2011, Intel C++ Studio XE 2011, Intel Composer XE 2011, Intel Fortran Composer XE 2011, Intel C++ Composer XE 2011, and Intel Cluster Studio 2011. Please visit the Intel Software Evaluation Center to evaluate this product.

What's New in Intel MKL 10.3 update 5

  • BLAS: Improved performance: {S,C,Z}TRSM for processors with Intel Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel AVX); {S,D}GEM2VU for processors with Intel AVX as well as the Intel Core i7 processor and the Intel Xeon processor 5500 series
  • BLAS: Improved scaling: ?TRMV for large matrices on all architectures; DGEMM for odd numbers of threads on Intel Xeon processor 5400 series
  • LAPACK: Included LAPACK 3.3.1 extensions and the respective LAPACKE interfaces
  • LAPACK: Improved the performance of ?SYGST and ?HEGST used in generalized eigenvalue problems
  • LAPACK: Improved the performance of the inverse of an LU factored matrix (?GETRI)
  • PARDISO: Added transpose and conjugate transpose solve capability (ATx=b and AHx=b); facilitates compressed sparse column (CSC) format support
  • PARDISO: Improve out-of-core PARDISO performance when the memory requirements slightly exceed available memory using MKL_PARDISO_OOC_MAX_SWAP_SIZE environment variable and in-core PARDISO
  • Optimization Solvers: Added Inf and NaN checks in the RCI Trust-Region solvers
  • FFTs: Improved the performance of 3D FFTs on small cubes from 2x2x2 to 10x10x10 for all supported precisions and types on all Intel processors supporting Intel SSE3 and later
  • FFT examples: Re-designed example programs to cover common use cases for Intel MKL DFTI and FFTW
  • VSL: Improved the performance of the single precision MT19937 and MT2203 basic random number generators on the Intel Core i7-2600 processor on 64-bit operating systems
  • VSL: Improved the performance of the integer version of the SOBOL quasi-random number generator on the Intel Core i7-2600 processor and Intel Xeon processor 5400 series
