Build SSE

with gcc:

gcc -O3 -msse2 FastMemcpy.c -o FastMemcpy

with msvc:

cl -nologo -arch:SSE2 -O2 FastMemcpy.c

Build AVX

with gcc:

gcc -O3 -mavx FastMemcpy_Avx.c -o FastMemcpy_Avx

with msvc:

cl -nologo -arch:AVX -O2 FastMemcpy_Avx.c

Features

  • 50% speedup in avg. vs traditional memcpy in msvc 2012 or gcc 4.9
  • small size copy optimized with jump table
  • medium size copy optimized with sse2 vector copy
  • huge size copy optimized with cache prefetch & movntdq

Reference

Using Block Prefetch for Optimized Memory Performance

The artical only focused on aligned huge memory copy. You need handle other cases by your self.
