That said, in Intel MKL PARDISO we have done a lot of performance improvements over years and developed completely different internal code paths and implemented new features. So, a statement that Intel MKL PARDISO has the same performance and features as PARDISO project dated 2006 would be completely wrong.
If you try both and see that PARDISO project happens to be faster for your particular workloads or has a particular feature which you need and which is absent in MKL, please let us know.

Best,
Kirill

It was because that the PARDISO project said “Important: Please note that the Intel MKL version of PARDISO is based on our version from 2006 and that a lot of new features and improvements of PARDISO are not available in the Intel MKL library.”

yes, that's a correct statement. Intel MKL Pardiso provides different API and many new modes as well.
