Intel Machine ( E5-2643 @ 3.30GHz)

Following library and flags were used:

MKLLIBS   = -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_sequential -lmkl_core
FFTW = Internal VASP FFTs
FFLAGS =  -free -names lowercase -assume byterecl
OFLAG  = -O2 -xsse2 -unroll-aggressive -warn general

As a first check, SIMD were changed and following is the result for MgMOS (input files can be found in the VASP):

Upon profiling the code, we found that the code spends most of its time in the FFTW libraries, so the next step is to change FFTW libraries. Following changes were made: FFT_OBJS = fftmpi_map.o fftmpiw.o fftw3d.o fft3dlib.o (The change here from original VASP makefile is inclusion of fftmpiw.o, which was not included before. It was fftmpi.o that was in the VASP FFT and was being called and we changed that) MKLDIR = $(HPC_MKL_DIR) MKLLIBS = -lmkl_intel_lp64 -lmkl_sequential -lmkl_core INCS = -I$(MKLDIR)/include/fftw FFTWdir=
