Parallelism Analysis Group

analysis group introduces analysis types based on applications that are compute-sensitive. They can be used as a starting point for overall application performance analysis before moving on to more targeted analysis types.
Compute-intensive application analysis includes the following analysis types:
  • Threading focuses on a particular target, shows how well your application is threaded for the existing number of logical CPU cores, identifies functions that took the most CPU time to execute and the synchronization objects that might cause ineffective CPU usage. In Intel System Studio, this analysis type does not support remote data collection on Android systems.
  • HPC Performance Characterization evaluates compute-sensitive or throughput applications for floating point operation and memory efficiency. It can be used as a starting point for understanding overall application performance.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
