Thus, there is no thread switching. That should help. No, it should not. A sane OpenMP implementation already does it (and each thread gets exactly 128 items). This corresponds to schedule(static) or maybe schedule(static, 128). Other alternatives, which may be better for things such as SunMD5, are schedule(dynamic) and schedule(guided). You may experiment with these. The default may vary between OpenMP implementations, and it may be overridden via the OMP_SCHEDULE environment variable. https://computing.llnl.gov/tutorials/openMP/#DO https://computing.llnl.gov/tutorials/openMP/#EnvironmentVariables Alexander
