Currently running a trial of Matlab on Windows with four AMD Opteron 6272 processors, 64 core / 64GB RAM. Bench (and other testing) shows it's SLOWER versus a six core Intel (single socket) install! Reading various resources online it has been suggested I should try using the AMD Core Math Library (ACML.DLL) vs the Intel Math Kernel Library (MKL.DLL).
How do I go about installing the ACML.DLL? I have found various links on the AMD website but it's unclear on how to go about it. I've tried a few packages (from AMD) but none of them have a file called ACML.DLL). Did mathworks ever ship such a file with Matlab installs?
I can see I need to update the file BLAS.SPEC such that AuthenticAMD processors point to the appropriate library (currently pointing to MKL.DLL). I just don't know how to find the appropriate ACML.DLL - I am running R2012a for this test. thank you
