Intel®Parallel Studio XE 2013 supposes to support TSX accordingly to its release information. But in my case, I don't see that. Maybe it because of misuse of commandline keys or misunderstanding of icl versioing. I don't know what asm compiler exactly is used by icl, but I suppose the one from its distribution.
Experiment was done on 64bit version of Windows with toy assembly routine.
Could someone clarify what is wrong?
