Overview

Intel Parallel Studio XE is a 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 available in three editions:

  • 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 vectorisation, threading prototyping and debugging tools for memory and threads.
  • Cluster Edition is our 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.
