Intel® Compiler Suite for Itanium® 2 Processors

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.

More information or purchase

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.

Intel Reps:

We purchased the Intel Compiler Suite for Itanium 2 Processors for our Suse 10.2 Itanium Server.  What we received states that it requires Suse 11 or higher.  We need some assistance with our purchased product.  If it will not work with our system, then we need a recommendation on where to go from here - or a refund.  Either way, we must get this resolved as our system still needs to get updated. 

A ticket was opened on this with Intel: 6000163612

The purchased product Serial Number is:  CFTN-VHMGVJ3X

Your assistance is appreciated.

We purchased one of your products: Intel Compiler Suite for Itaniam 2 Processors (Serial #CFTN-VHMGVJ3X).  We have run into some technical problems, and need some assistance.  I have looked for a phone number to get that assistance.  No phone number seems to be available.  These are the issues that we're having:

1) Our OS is SUSE 10.  The software we received says it supports SUSE 11.  Will what we purchase work on our OS?  We stated that our OS is SUSE 10.  Not sure why we received on for SUSE 11.

2) When trying to install the compiler software, we see a message stating that we can't - without removing the current software.  There does not appear to be a way to do what it needs - therefore we can't install the software we purchased for Intel.
