Submission + - .NET JIT Getting SIMD Support (

iONiUM writes: As per the MSDN article, the long proposed user request for SIMD support has finally been answered. A NuGet package preview is available here. From the article: "You may think that task-based programming or offloading work to threads is already the answer. While multi-threading is certainly a critical part, it’s important to realize that it’s still important to optimize the code that runs on each core. SIMD is a technology that employs data parallelization at the CPU level. Multi-threading and SIMD complement each other: multi-threading allows parallelizing work over multiple cores while SIMD allows parallelizing work within a single core."
