Some time ago I checked performence of std:copy and several BLAS-1 operations.
While on most (sabe) machines, there's not much a difference, there
can be large difference for Itanium based machines. I'm not sure for
std:copy, but dscal or ddot is much faster using the MKL version
than compared to a simple for loop, while on other architectures I didn't see
a big difference between vendor BLAS and for loops.

Best regards,
