Intel® System Studio 2016 for FreeBSD* provides a comprehensive embedded tool suite solution for developing, optimizing, tuning and deploying 64-bit system and application C, C++ code running natively on FreeBSD* host systems. This product release includes the following components:

  • Intel® C++ Compiler 16.0 Update 3 for FreeBSD* systems
  • Intel® VTune™ Amplifier 2016 Update 3 for Systems for FreeBSD* Targets


  1. The Intel C++ Compiler 16.0 Update 3 for FreeBSD* is delivered as a self-contained installer script for product installation and usage.  For product installation on the host FreeBSD* system instructions, refer to the “Installation" section in the Intel® C++ Compiler 16.0 for FreeBSD* release notes.
  2. The Intel® VTuneTM Amplifier 2016 Update 3 for Systems for FreeBSD* Targets requires you to have already installed the Intel® VTune Amplifier on the host system such as Linux*, Windows* or OS X* respectively.

    The model used for FreeBSD* is the standard paradigm of collecting trace data on your FreeBSD* target and visualizing this data on the host system where you have installed VTune Amplifier.
