Intel® Compiler Suite for Itanium® 2 Processors includes Intel® C++ Compiler 11.1 for Linux* and Intel® Fortran Compiler 11.1 for Linux*. Each compiler supports Linux*-based systems using Intel® Itanium® 2 processors including the latest eight-core 9500 series.
Intel Compiler Suite for Itanium 2 Processors is a package of compilers for systems based on Intel Itanium 2 processors running Linux*. The package includes both Intel C++ and Intel Fortran compilers for Linux.
Both compilers include the following features:
- Outstanding application performance
- Compatibility with the gnu tool chain
- High Performance Parallel Optimizer (HPO), which delivers parallelization and loop transformations
- Interprocedural Optimization (IPO), which dramatically improves performance of frequently-used functions
- Profile-Guided Optimization (PGO), which improves application performance by reducing instruction-cache thrashing, reorganizing code layout, shrinking code size, and reducing branch mispredictions
- OpenMP* 3.0 support, which raises the abstraction away from the API, simplifying threading and making code more portable
Unique to Intel® C++ Compiler
Exception handling uses existing build-options to product better-optimized code leading to improved application performance. IEEE 754R Standard implementation overcomes otherwise unavoidable precision issues implied by binary FP formats. Great for banking, accounting, billing, and e-commerce.
Unique to Intel® Fortran Compiler
More Fortran 2003 support including object-oriented features such as CLASS declaration, SELECT TYPE constant, inheritance association and more. Other additions support deferred-length character entities, PUBLIC types with PRIVATE components (and vice versa), ENUMERATOR, IEEE Floating Point Exception Handling, ALLOCATE extensions, array constructor changes and more to bring your Fortran apps closer to the standard. These join C interoperability features introduced in the last release to make it easier to develop mixed-language applications.
