PARDISO and DSS

Hi all,
I wanted to compare the LU factorization time done by DSS and PARDISO on a quad core Intel CPU in MS VS 2008. In PARDISO I have set the iparm(2)=3 to use parallel threads, however I am not seeing any acceleration in compare with DSS or even when iparm(2)=0 or 2.
If PARDIOS is faster than DSS? and if DSS is using parallel threads by default?
Thanks.

Vahid,

you won't see any speed up bacause DSS is just a simplier interface to Pardiso. Core is the same.

exactly,DSS is just different, simplified interface which provides the same efficiency of calculations.

You mean both DSS and PARDISO are using all 4 cores of the quad core CPU by default? We don't need to set anything for this purpose, right?
Thank you.

It depends of version of MKL you are using. For the latest (10.2 and 10.3) versions that's correct.
