MKL, OpenBLAS and Accelerate are very close in performance, except for
level-1 BLAS where Accelerate and MKL are better than OpenBLAS.
MKL requires the number of threads to be a multiple of four to achieve
good performance, OpenBLAS and Accelerate do not. It e.g. matters if you
have an online data acquisition and DSP system and want to dedicate one
processor to take care of i/o tasks. In this case OpenBLAS and
Accelerate are likely to perform better than MKL.
