Threading Notes

Intel® IPP provides Threading Layer APIs on top of sequential Intel® IPP libraries. The APIs include two variants 1) functions with _T suffix in the names, providing threading implementation based on classic Intel® IPP APIs; 2) functions with _LT suffix, providing threading implementation based on Intel® IPP Platform-Aware functions. The Threading Layer APIs support both OpenMP* and Intel® Threading Building Blocks(Intel® TBB) threading technology. Source code of Intel® IPP Threading Layer is also available in the Intel® IPP package as an example and basis to organize threading for pipeline inside a customer application.

The legacy Intel® IPP threaded libraries will be dropped in future release, the code written with these libraries will work as before. However, the threaded library will not expand its threading functions, and the new threading will be developed only in the new Intel® IPP Threading Layer APIs.

It is recommended that you use the new Intel® IPP Threading Layer APIs or implement the threading based on Intel® IPP Threading Layer source code examples in your applications. For more information, check the “Threading Layer Functions” section in the Intel® IPP Developer Reference.

Known Intel® IPP 2020 Update 2 Issues and Limitations

  • If you use Intel® IPP through Intel® System Studio or Intel® Parallel Studio XE suite. This Link provides pointer on downloading Intel® IPP 2020 Update 2 samples.
  • Intel® IPP Signal Processing is deprecating string processing domain and MIMO algorithms within Intel® IPP embedded domain in the future release. If you have any concerns, open a ticket and provide feedback at Intel® online support center.
  • The Erode and Dilate APIs added additional optimization branches. Some optimization branches have performance degradation on the Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions(Intel® AVX) optimization code.
  • The threading layer examples on macOS* fail to build because of the incorrect Makefile. To work around the issue, remove the intel64/ suffix from the G_IPP_PATH_SUFFIX variable in the components/interfaces/tl/Makefile_base.mk file.
  • If you use the standalone version of Intel® IPP on Linux* OS together with, Intel® TBB, you have to install the standalone version of Intel® TBB, otherwise the examples may crash. This is a workaround for this version. For more information, see this article.

    • Removed support for Intel® Quark™ microprocessors in this release.
    • The IA-32 libraries on macOS* are deprecated and will be removed in a future release.
  • Threading Notes:
    • Intel® IPP provides Threading Layer APIs on top of sequential Intel® IPP libraries. The APIs include two variants 1) functions with _T suffix in the names, providing threading implementation based on classic IPP APIs; 2) functions with _LT suffix, providing threading implementation based on Intel IPP Platform-Aware functions. The Threading Layer APIs support both OpenMP* and Intel® Threading Building Blocks threading technology. Source code of Intel® IPP Threading Layer is also available in IPP package as example and basis to organize threading for pipeline inside a customer application.
    • The legacy Intel IPP threaded libraries are still available by custom installation, and the code written with these libraries will work as before. However, the threaded library will not expand its threading functions, and the new threading will be developed only in the new Intel® IPP threading layer APIs.
    • User applications are recommended to use the new Intel® IPP Threading Layer APIs or implement the threading based on IPP Threading Layer source code examples in their applications. Check the “Threading Layer Functions” section in the Intel® IPP Developer Reference, to get more information on these APIs.
