Optimizing Applications for Multi-Core Processors is the essential guide to incorporating the fully thread-safe Intel® Integrated Performance Primitive (IPP) functions into your applications. Stewart Taylor, the former chief architect of the IPP, explains proven techniques for using the library to exploit the advanced Intel® micro-architecture features without having to write processorspecific code. When you register your book you have access to extensive examples written in C and C++ which explore the range of possible applications, from multimedia to signal and data processing, and show you how to take advantage of functions that are now highly optimized for the Intel multi-core processors.
“Filled with comprehensive real-world examples. I’m recommending this book to my entire software team.”
—Davis W. Frank, Software Prog ram Manager, palmOne, Inc.
“If you want to optimize your code using IPP, you must get this book. It is recommended reading for all of my engineers.”
—Daniel Staheli, Development Team Lead, Roxio
