The Intel Academic Program announces new software projects for security coursework, labs and experiments. These tools support the Intel Security Curriculum Series and can be used in general aspects of security instruction. Peruse our first projects on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES), Trusted Boot, Identity Protection and Digital Random Number Generator (DRNG) here on the Security tab: http://software.intel.com/academic
The following is a compendium of research publications from Intel Labs focused on optimization of High Performance Computing (HPC) algorithms for improved performance on Intel(R) Xeon(R) processors and Intel(R) Xeon Phi(tm) Coprocessors. We will continue to update this list as new publications are posted.
Obtaining Older Compiler Versions
Licensed customers are able to download older VERSIONS of compilers. Using your account, log in to Intel Registration Center to obtain software downloads. Here is an article on obtaining older versions of products.

I had an interesting question come across my desk a few days ago: “Is it still worthwhile to understand T-states?” My first response was to think, “Huh? What the heck is a T-state?”
Doing a little more research, I discovered that, yes, there is something called a T-state, and no, it really isn’t relevant any more, at least for mainline Intel(R) processors.
Let me say this again: T-States are no longer relevant!
