Intel Parallel Studio XE 2018

 

Deliver Top-Notch Software Performance

This comprehensive suite of development tools makes it simpler to build and modernise code with the latest techniques in vectorisation, multithreading, multinode parallelisation, and memory optimisation. It enables C, C++, Fortran, and Python* software developers to:

  • Create faster code: Boost application performance that scales on current and future Intel platforms.
  • Build code faster: Simplify the process of creating parallel code.
  • Get priority support: Connect directly to Intel engineers for confidential answers to technical questions.

Intel Parallel Studio XE is a comprehensive suite of development tools that make it fast and easy to build modern code that gets every last ounce of performance out of the newest Intel processors. This tool-packed suite simplifies creating code with the latest techniques in vectorisation, multi-threading, multi-node, and memory optimisation. Get powerful, consistent programming with Intel Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel AVX-512) instructions for Intel Xeon and Xeon Ph processors, plus support for the latest standards and integrated development environments (IDEs). New features include the combined performance snapshot feature of Intel VTune Amplifier that shows MPI, CPU, and FPU memory use; the roofline analysis feature of Intel Advisor to find high-impact but under-optimised loops; high performance Python* to accelerate HPC - and more.

Who Needs It?

  • C, C++, Fortran, and Python* software developers building HPC, enterprise, and cloud solutions
  • Developers looking to maximise their software's performance on current and future Intel platforms.

Three editions based on your development needs:

  • Composer Edition includes industry-leading C++ and Fortran compilers, performance libraries, standards-based parallel models, and performance-optimised Python. Build fast code, faster.
  • Professional Edition includes a complete selection of compilers and libraries. Build your capabilities with a performance profiler, optimised vectorization, threading prototyping, and debugging tools for memory and threads.
  • Cluster Edition is Intel's flagship suite. It includes all tools from the other versions, plus an MPI library, an MPI tuning and analysis tool, and an advanced cluster diagnostic system.
