The answer is "Yes, of course!" as I explain below. But first, an analogy.Toys, more generally - kids toys, are typically rated based on the target age group for which the toys are recommended. There is in fact a 300-odd page document that provides the guidelines! While not based on exact science, the age rating does help in toy selection.
Intel(R) Advisor XE 2013 Update 4 has a very valuable feature to help reduce time it takes to run analyses.
Intel(R) Advisor XE 2013 helps developers discover what parts of their software programs scale well. Determining scalability of a piece of code is essential to determine if it is worth parallelizing and if so, the size of an actual machine which can exploit such scalabile code.

These free technical webinars cover tips and techniques that will help sharpen your development skills to create faster, more reliable applications. Technical experts will cover topics ranging from vectorization, code migration, code optimization, using advanced threading techniques (e.g., OpenMP 4.0, Intel® Cilk™ Plus, Intel® TBB), and error checking. Bring programming questions to the live session for our technical experts to answer. A replay of each webinar will be available shortly after the live session so you can share with those unable to attend the live session.
