Linking to "new" versions of MKL with older compilers

I've recently discovered that I need to build a code with Version 11.1 of the Intel compiler in order to satisfy customer requirements. Is there any reason I can't do this and statically link to the latest MKL libraries distributed with ComposerXE?

I haven't run extensive tests, but I've compiled my code against the newer MKL libraries and everything appears to function correctly. Is this a risky proposition?

Thanks,
Greg

yes, you can do that.it's not risky proposition. your application statically linked to the latest MKL libraries would provide the optimizations for all latest Intel architectures.
