Intel AVX Gives Numerical Computations in Java a Big Boost

Recent Intel® enhancements to Java enable faster and better numerical computing. In particular, the Java Virtual Machine (JVM) now uses the Fused Multiply Add (FMA) instructions on Intel Intel Xeon® PhiTM processors with Advanced Vector Instructions (Intel AVX) to implement the Open JDK9 Math.fma()API. This gives significant performance improvements for matrix multiplications, the most basic computation found in most HPC, Machine Learning, and AI applications.
