Threaded FFT Problems
The following characteristics of a specific problem determine whether your FFT computation may be threaded with OpenMP*:
- precision (single or double)
- placement (in-place or out-of-place)
- number of transforms
- layout (for example, interleaved or split layout of complex data)
Most FFT problems are threaded. In particular, computation of multiple transforms in one call (number of transforms > 1) is threaded. Details of which transforms are threaded follow.
One-dimensional (1D) transforms
1D transforms are threaded in many cases.
1D complex-to-complex (c2c) transforms of size N using interleaved complex data layout are threaded under the following conditions depending on the architecture:
N is a power of 2, log2(N) > 9, the transform is double-precision out-of-place, and input/output strides equal 1.
N is composite, log2(N) > 16, and input/output strides equal 1.
1D complex-to-complex transforms using split-complex layout are not threaded.
All multidimensional transforms on large-volume data are threaded.
