AFAIR you only gain performance benefits if the compiler is able to
automatically vectorize computations. Unfortunatly are the expression
template constructions quite complicated. So most compilers do not recognize
possible optimizations. Second, there were (some years ago) some explicit
loop unrolling tests. Look for BOOST_UBLAS_USE_DUFF_DEVICE inside the code.
(Tell me if you manage successful compilation with

I think, if you look for maximal performance, you have to use the
BLAS-bindings inside some critical routines. All other access patters are to
complicated to benefit from SIMD anyway.
