Optimization SIMD 256-bit

Recommended Posts

I've been starting to optimize my code in anyway possible. I saw that some cpu's actually have 256-bit SIMD, but I was wondering if there is a way to detect this and fallback to the 128-bit on an unsupported cpu, or how else to deal with this.

Remember, the intrinsics will determine the code to generate at compile time.  If you want runtime fallback in a single executable you need to use cpuid-based feature detection as well.

Right, that was on that website, that was what I was looking for run-time detection.
