In this article you'll gain valuable insight into how to exploit the capabilities of the new 256-bit instructions from the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions (Intel® AVX).
These instructions are part of the new microarchitecture found in the 2nd Gen Intel® Core™ Processor Family (code-named Sandy Bridge). Starting from a humble, non-tuned "release mode" compilation and progressing to the full 256-bit Intel® AVX version, you'll read how code performance improves by more than an order of magnitude.
