Intel has compiled a set of MKL (Math Kernel Libraries) for Linux. Does

anyone know of any plans to have these compiled under QNX? I am currently

installing CBLAS (Basic Linear Algebra Subroutines) and LAPACK (Linear

Algebra Package) for evaluation, but I expect this to be significantly

slower than a machine- and OS-optimized solution.

If MKL does not call linushish stuff from within I think you should be able

to link QNX6 binary against Linux MKL lib. I don’t quite understand what is

‘math kernel’ though…

Yes, this should work. We have done the same with similar Linux libraries

from Sandia National Laboratories which are unofficial UNIX ports of the Intel MKL.

The “math kernel” is processor optimized libraries for linear algebra, FFT and similar

which have a standardized API (e.g. BLAS and LAPACK).

I think they are using MMX/SSE and similar since they e.g. can get 3GFLOPS

throughput for FFT on a 1500MHz P4 processor.
