I need an advice for sample below code that requires lots of time for processing. I am developing project on OpenCV and have code blocks like this ( some of them are pictures ). What should I use for more speed? Like, OpenMP or TBB ( that's new in OpenCV and more complex, maybe some examples more helpful ) or GPU ( implementing entire project ) or Boost library or another I don't know 3rd party libraries.

i didn't write multithread on c++ before

thanks for helping now

sample code snippet:

for( int i = 0; i < 3000; i++ )
    for( int j = 0; j < 3000; j++ )
        for ( int index = 0; index < 3000; index++ )
           // float point operations

This is the fastest way to solve your mystery:

int n = 9000;
int a = n*(n-1)/2;

By the way, while this is not what you are looking for, it proves a point: the best optimizations are algorithm simplifications, not brute-force calculations.

And if you want an example code for OpenMP or TBB, please have a look in their documentation.

thank you, but in here calculation of a is not an issue. I asked question wrongly. how can handle like double or triple for?

The answer is the same: focus on getting rid of double for loops. Then, for parallel processing, read OpenMP/TBB docs.
