: VOLK can take advantage of the Oil Runtime Compiler (ORC) to
create cross-platform kernels relatively quickly. ORC is a
higher-level language way to write SIMD code for different SIMD
architectures. The ease of writing an Orc function can be offset by a
less well-tuned architecture-specific kernel (generality versus
speed). ORC can often be a good place to start writing VOLK kernels
and then optimize as necessary.
