MKL is actually included as a component in the latest release of the Intel compiler suite, and may therefore be available on further resources than indicated here. Please contact centre support for details. Much of the functionality of MKL is also offered by ACML from AMD. In particular on architectures utilising AMD processors, it is often worthwhile to assess whether MKL or ACML offer better performance for the given software.
