Intel® Advisor XE 2013 Update 1 is now available for both Linux* and Windows*. You can learn more about the product at the Intel® Advisor XE Home Page.

Intel® Advisor XE 2013 guides developers to add parallelism to their existing C/C++, Fortran, or C# programs.

Intel Advisor XE provides a standalone graphical user interface (GUI) as well as a command line interface (CLI). Intel Advisor XE also integrates into Microsoft Visual Studio* software. You can use the Intel Advisor XE to: 

  • Find the most time-consuming serial code regions in your program.
  • Insert Intel Advisor XE annotations to identify these as possible parallel code regions.
  • Predict approximate parallel performance characteristics of the proposed parallel code regions.
  • Check for data sharing problems that could prevent the application from working correctly when parallelized.  

Update 1 adds:
  • A small toolbar for the Survey Report
  • A Getting Started Tutorial for the Fortran sample
  • Various bug fixes and improvements
If you're doing any multi-threaded software developement or planning on adding parallelism to an application Intel® Advisor XE is for you. You can download a free evaluation copy to try it out!
