Performance without Compromise

If your application could use a performance boost, incorporate the Intel® C++ Compiler into your development cycle. It's optimized to take advantage of advanced processor features like multiple cores and wider vector registers, including Intel® Advanced Vector Extensions 512 (Intel® AVX-512) instructions. The compiler is a drop-in addition for C and C++ development and has broad support for current and previous C and C++ standards. They include C++14 and C99, and now substantial C++17 support.

Software and workloads used in performance tests may have been optimized for performance only on Intel® microprocessors. Performance tests, such as SYSmark and MobileMark, are measured using specific computer systems, components, software, operations, and functions. Any change to any of those factors may cause the results to vary. You should consult other information and performance tests to assist you in fully evaluating your contemplated purchases, including the performance of that product when combined with other products. For more complete information, visit Performance Benchmark Test Disclosure.

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. Notice revision #20110804
