Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition For Fortran and C++ unites development tools for unprecedented application performance and code robustness for the latest generation of multicore processors.
Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition For Fortran and C++ combines Intel’s industry-leading C/C++ and Fortran compilers; performance and parallel libraries; error checking, code robustness, and performance profiling tools into a single suite offering. This helps boost application performance and increase the code quality, security, and reliability needed by high-performance computing and enterprise applications. At the same time, the suite eases the procurement of all the necessary tools for high performance, and simplifies the transition from multicore to manycore processors in the future. Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition For Fortran and C++ is a bundle of three nextgeneration revisions of industry-leading products—Intel Composer XE, Intel Inspector XE, and Intel VTune Amplifier XE.
Available for Multiple OSs —Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition For Fortran and C++ provides the same set of tools to aid development for Windows* and Linux* platforms, available separately. C/C++, Fortran compilers, and performance and parallelism libraries bring advanced optimizations to the Mac OS* X platform as well.
Robustness —Intel Inspector XE memory and thread analyzer finds and pinpoints memory and threading errors before they happen.
Code Quality—Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition For Fortran and C++ enables developers to effectively find software security vulnerabilities through static security analysis.
Performance—Intel VTune Amplifier XE performance profiler finds bottlenecks in serial and parallel code that limit performance. Improvements include a more intuitive interface, fast statistical call graph, and timeline view. Intel Math Kernel Library (Intel MKL) and Intel Integrated Performance Primitives (Intel IPP) performance libraries provide robust multicore performance for commonly used math and data processing routines. A simple linking of the application with these libraries is an easy first step to multicore parallelism.
Advanced optimizations—The compilers and libraries in Intel Composer XE offer advanced vectorization support, including support for Intel AVX. The C/C++ optimizing compiler now includes Intel Parallel Building Blocks (Intel PBB) library, which expands the types of problems that can be solved with increased scale and reliability, while also simplifying the process. For Fortran developers, it now offers Co-Array Fortran* and additional support for the Fortran 2008 standard.
Compatibility and Support—Intel Parallel Studio XE Professional Edition For Fortran and C++ offers excellent compatibility with leading development environments and compilers. Intel provides broad support with forums and Intel Premier Support, which deliver fast answers and covers all software updates for one year.
