There's been a ton of work going on in getting us ready to really start using Volk in GNU Radio blocks. Instead of repeating myself, here, you can see more about the who/what/when/why/how of the changes here: 


The basic summary is that I'm seeing amazing performance results and I'm very excited to get this into our project.

I'm really hoping that people can check out the branch and test it out against their applications. A number of changes were made inside GNU Radio and a handful of blocks have been converted to using Volk, and I'd like to see how the performance compares. My own tests show great results, but I have a pretty heterogeneous setup (Linux/Ubuntu and Intel processors).

I should have another post on my website later this week discussing my benchmark results for the Volk blocks, but anyone interested in testing it out on their own should check out gnuradio-examples/python/volk_benchmark. The README in that directory should help you understand what to do and how to do it.

We would like to get this merged into GNU Radio master (and therefore version 3.5.2) as soon as possible, so I would really appreciate feedback and bug reports as soon as possible.
