Re: [eigen] Eigen 3 is extremely slow

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I do not have any NaN values and I have checked it for my sample dataset.

I did some additional tests and it appears that it is not the matrix multiplication itself that is slow, but it appears to be some really bad case of cache usage.

Once projected, I use the points to sample from an Array (512x512). If I do not use Eigen for this array (instead using a std. C array), then my performance is much better.

I hope that is able to point you in the right direction.

I was using an ArrayXXf (also tried MatrixXf) to store the array.

If his matrix has NaN values, that could explain another 500x factor.
