SIMD support on Mono

Nov 15, 2011 at 1:57 PM

Clearly, Microsoft have not bothered getting around to adding support for SIMD instructions to the .NET Framework/CLR yet, but I believe the Mono implementation is already quite functional. Does Math.NET make use of these features on Mono? No doubt, they would offer a significant speed up.

Yes, indeed, we're still waiting.

We currently don't have any special mono builds. It would certainly be possible to create a Math.NET Numerics linear algebra provider for mono though, that leverages Mono.Simd (e.g. based on our ManagedLinearAlgebraProvider).

Thanks,
