Vc 0.6.0 Released

Added by Matthias Kretz over 6 years ago

I'm pleased to announce the release of version 0.6 of the SIMD vector classes for C++.

The major improvement of 0.6 over 0.5 is its support for the AVX instructions in current AMD and Intel CPUs. For example, the Mandelbrot benchmark shows a two-fold speedup of AVX over SSE, and there were no code changes required in the Mandelbrot code itself.

There were also many other small changes to improve compiler compatibility, simplify API usage and optimize resulting binary code.
